€oticnt garden Cljcatrc. 

The fullest attendance we have seen at cither theatre this season, 
honoured the benefit of Miss JVI. Tree last evening. The pit was 
filled ; every seat in it was occupied immediately on the opening of 
the doors, and before half-pries the boxes and slips were thronged to 
excess. Those who came in late were obliged to officiate as lobby- 
loungers, of which there was a very numerous squad condemned to 
saunter without a seat throughout the night. This testimony of public 
favor is as marked as it is merited. There is no lady on the stage who 
exceeds — nay, perhaps, who equals — Miss Tree in that most exqui- 
site attribute of song — deep and pathetic feeling, which shows that 
the sentiment flows from the heart, and that the sound is but an echo 
of the sense. In that beautifully impressive ballad, " Home, sweet 
home" which was most deservedly encored, the words dropt from her 
lips " like the dew from the bending flower/' and the notes of her se- 
dulously cultivated voice, rise " like a stream of rich perfumes upon 
the air." In the character of Rosalind, which she played last even- 
ing for the first time, she was eminently successful. There is no 
other actress on the stage, who, in an equal degree, unites the comic 
and vocal abilities which are suited to this interesting part. Miss A. 
Tree made her second appearance (as Celia) on any stage, and the 
first of this season. She is a very pleasing, though not powerful, 
singer, formed on the model of her sister. A Concert of well-selected 
aad popular music followed the play.

Messrs. Blanchard and Ware took a joint Benefit here last night, 
and we understand had a good house. 

^apinarfett €(jcattc* 

The Opera of Sweethearts and Wives has lost none of its attrac- 
tions, except the loss of Mr. Terry, who, although Mr. Williams 
is very clever, is greatly missed at this house. 

EDrtirp %anc €&eatr& 

Last night the amusing Comedy of The Heir at Law, was repre- 
sented with very excellent effect. Mr. Dowton acted Daniel Dowlas, 
alias Lord Dnberly, and made an admirahlc Chandler. Mr. Harley 
represented Doctor Pangloss, and a very entertaining one he was. — 
Mr. Knight is nature, simple nature itself, in the character of the 
honest warm-hearted country lad, Zekiel Homespun. Mrs. Orger 
was an excellent Cicely, and Mr. Penley amusing as Dick Dowlas. 

Mr. Mathews closed his most successful Entertainment for the 
season last night, with the following Farewell Address : — 

" Ladies and Gentlemen — In once more taking my leave of you for a season, 
I wish I could think on something to say which would entitle you to exclaim 
with our late friend Mr. Bray—" Well I never heard that before ;'** hut the lan- 
guage of grateful acknowledgment is soon exhausted, however unbounded may 
be the feeling that prompts it. To say I am proud of your applause, and grate- 
ful for your kindness, is a •* twice told tale," which has been more than thrice 
repeated, but be assured that the undiminished favour I have experienced has 
year after year increased my anxiety to merit your smiles, and will leave an in- 
delible recollection on my heart when I and my hnmbl-2 efforts to amuse you may 
perhaps be forgotton. While thus encouraged It would be affectation if not in- 
gratitude to talk of retiring from public life; while I continue, therefore, to 
receive your approbation, I shall continue my endeavours to deserve it ; and 
trust I shall next year be able to present you with something, at least as well 
deserving your attention as any thing I have heretofore had the pleasure and 
honour of submitting to your notice. With this hope, and the gratifying an- 
ticipation of soon meeting yon again, 1 most reepectfully and cordially bid 
you farewell." 

Mr. Booth. — We regret to learn, that Mr. Booth, the actor, who has been 
performing some nights at the Park Theatre, in a state of mental derangemant, 
on Saturday made an attack upon Mr. Wallack, of the Chatham Garden Thea- 
tre, with a dagger, and being foiled, made an attempt to destroy himself, but 
was secured, and conveyed to the house of a friend. We hope he will soon re- 
cover, if he has not already, and never again use his dagger but in mimic scenes. 
This hit might have been too palpable. — American Paper.

Yesterday evening there was a very crowded house, it being what 
is called a ticket-night. The Comedy of John Bull was excellently 
performed. Mr. Fawoett's Job Thornlerry, and Miss Chester's 
Jfa)% were particularly well acted. Mr. Cooper represented Pere- 
grine with much judgment and effect, and Mr. Jones and Mrs. Chat- 
tbrley as the fashionables, were quite at home. Mr. Connor, Mr. 
Kayner, and Mrs. Davenport, supported the Brnlgruden/s, and 
Dan, very humorously, and the Sir Simon Rochdale of Mr. Blan- 
chard was very well played. The Farce of Cent, per Cent, followed. 

SDmrp Sane Cftcattc. 

JWjin and Wife, and The Revolt of the Greeks, were the pieces of 
last night. — Mr. Tf.rrv is to appear here this evening as Sir Pertinax

The English Opera-Bouse, it will be seen, opens to-night for its

Mr. Bradbury, on taking leare lately in Dublin for the last time, combines 
a stjle of enthusiastic gratitude with the announcement of his wonderful feats, 
in a very comical manner. Wc are told within a few lines of each other, that.

CORRESPONDENTS. 

A Constant R<aucr wishes to know why so impartial and fair a critic as the 
Editor of The Theatrical Observer has ever been, should consider it be- 
neath his notice to give some account of the performances at Drury Lane Thea- 
tre, on the occasion of Miss Booth's Benefit last night. 
July I, 1S-21. 

In rep]y to the above the Editor begs to say, that it is impossible for the 
moderate profits of this Publication to bear tbV-c^nense of being present at 
every Benefit. The Editor greatly admires the talents of Miss S. Booth, and 
should have been happy, on every account, to have shewn her the fullest 
attention.

€ngii£f) <©pera#ou£e* 

Tins highly pleasant Summer Theatre opened for its regular season 
on Saturday night. Notwithstanding the bad weather, a numerous 
and genteel audience were assembled in the course of the evening.—- 
The first piece was the amusing Opera of The Barber of Seville, 
which afforded an opportunity for Mr. Philipps to resume his post 
here after a lapse of many years. His vocal powers are at least of 
an agreeable description, and altogether were very satisfactorily 
displayed. The chief attraction of the evening was a pupil of his, 
a Miss Harvey, a very engaging, and very young lady, who made 
her debut in the difficult part of Rosina. When we say that to many 
personal charms, this young debutante, united vocal skill of a superior 
nature, it will not be surprising that she should be received with the 
most decided marks of approbation by the whole audience. Her 
lower tones are peculiarly full and deep, whilst her upper notes are 
clear, and extensive. Mips Harvey has evidently been instructed with 
much care, and if there is a fault to dwell upon, it is an occasional 
deficiency of richness of melody in her voice, and a partial abandon- 
ment of expression for execution : this she can greatly correct. She 
sang the favorite air of " Mayand Uecembery' in a manner' that in- 
duced the andlence to call on her for it a second, and even' a third 
time; with which she complied with every demonstration becoming 
of modest pleasure and grateful feeling. We consider her both on 
account of her agreeable acting and voice, a considerable acquisition 
to this theatre, where such vast exertions have been made this season 
to gratify the public with some of our most esteemed and admirable 
vocalists — A new Pantomime followed, which met a favorable reception.

Bnir.iiTON Theatre — Every preparation is making for the opening of this 
elegant little Theatre by the indefatigable Russiu.l : the season commences in 
about a fortnight, and if he pursues the same liberal course as last year, thore 
is no fear of a repetition of that support he has so many years deservedly re- 
ceived from the public — his mode of management is peculiar, but is distin- 
guished for its correctness and spirit, and if the high patronage theTheutre has 
received since under his direction, is any criterion of good management, Mr. 
RU8S8LL has been more than usually fortunate — his exertions to promote the 
interests of the profession generally, and in gratifying the pleasures of the 
public, have always been known to be great as to reader any further comment 
from us unnecessary — his company aie of no ordinary kind — in hit seleetiou of 
some of the most favorite actors on the London boards, he has gone upon an 
extensive plan, many having been engaged on very liberal salaries. The Mr. 
Baurv, from whose superior acting a short timesinceat Windsor, we were in- 
duced to notice, is amongst the list already engaged : we heartily wish bira 
every success. We hear the. Races commence in about a fortnight, at which 
His Majesty iutends being present each day.

The performances of last night, our readers are aware, were de- 
voted to the purpose of Mrs. Bland's last Benefit ; and we arc most 
happy to say it was one which will yield her some resource in the mo- 
ment of her difficulties. Short may they be, and speedy her complete 
recovery to enjoy the protection of that public she has so often de- 
lighted. 

Calient 4Bartien 3Tf)catre. 

Mr. C. Kemble, who had been for some time on a provincial pro- 
fessional tour, is returned to town, and appeared last night in the 
character of Falstaff, in the First Part of King Henry the Fourth, 
to which he gives so much humorous point. Mr. Bennett acted 
Hotspur with considerable effect. The other characters were well 
supported. 

Mr. Coor/ER and Mr. Rayner, who arc both highly popular per- 
formers, have their joint Benefit to-night. The King, we understand, 
has graciously given up the Royal Box for the use of the Mexican 
Envoy, who is to be present. A great house is expected. 

€nglt#f) €>pera^ouj£e* 

Miss Harvey again experienced the most favorable reception in 
the part of Rosina ; if her artificial acquirements only equal her na- 
tural powers, Miss Tree, and even Miss Paton, may tremble for 
their laurels. The Monkey Island went off very well. 

I^apmarftct €$mtt. 

There was an excellent attendance here last night. — The perform- 
ances of this evening are Exchange no Robbery, Love Laughs at 
Locksmiths, and Two Strings to your Bow. 

Mr. Harris has disposed of the new Theatre Royal, on a lease of 
five years, at the annual sum of £5000 British. An English company 
are the lessees, and Mr. Abbott, of Covcnt-garden, is to be at the 
head of the management. — Dublin Paper. 

It is said the orders by which the officers of the 10th. Hussars were 
prohibited from attending the theatres have been rescinded, and that 
three of the corps wer n permitted to attend on trial. — Ibid. 

Mrs. Kemble intends to defray the additional expenses, beyond the amount 
of the subscription, of the Monument intended to be placed in Westminster 
Abbey, to commemorate her late husband. The Monument will consist of a 
whole length of the great actor in Roman costume, and Cato is judiciously se- 
lected as the character. The execution of it is consigned to Flaxman, who 
was a very particular friend of Mr. Kbmdle. 

Sadler's Wells.— There was a change of pieces here last night, which was 
well received by a genteel and numerons audience.

Mb. Cooper, Mr. Uayner, and Miss Lacy, took a joint Benefit 
here last night, and received the support of a numerous body of 
friends, and admirers of their talents. Miss Lacy appeared as the 
Hon. Mrs. Qlcnroy, and also as Ella Rosenberg, which she acted 
most interestingly. Mr. Cooper, in the Comedy of Town and Coun- 
try, acted Reuben Glenroy, a part to which he communicated an 
effect that did not diminish the estimate formed of his powers. Mr. 
Ravner, in the same pieco, acted Jacky Hawbuck with all his usual 
felicity of rustic style. The Farce of The Irish Widow presented us 
with the debut of " A Lady/' as the Widow Brady. This was a 
very pleasing and successful first appearance. In person and coun- 
tenance, tone, and manner, there was every thing to admire. She 
must certainly be seen again in the character. 

£>rurp flane €f)eatrk 

Tub Way to Get Married was agreeably acted here laat night. In 
the melo-drama of The Falls of Clyde, Miss S. Booth played Ellen 
Enfield in a most interesting manner.

Thb pleasant French piece, from which Match-Making was taken, 
and was acted so successfully last season at the Haymarket, has 
afforded us an agreeable Operetta under the title of " Military Tac- 
tics." — It amused, from being weli acted. A newly arranged song of 
Mr. Pearman's, was encored. It was announced for Thursday next 
without the slightest disapprobation. Tom Thamh, and Monkey 
Island, followed, and amused much. Master Burke, aged five years, 
astonished by his performance on the Violin. 

^apmarftct €fjcatr& 

Love Laughs at Locksmiths, was last night followed by Exchange 
no Robbery, in which Mr. W. Farren appeared for the first time as 
Sir Christopher Cranberry, and acted it with an effect that produced 
much laughter and applause. Mr. Liston, as Sam Swipes, almost 
killed sundry persons, whose "lungs did cruw like chanticleer." Mr. 
W. West played Lamotte very humorously, and Mrs. ChAttbrlby 
and Mr. Vining received much applause. Mrs. Gibbs was prevented 
by her engagements at Covcnt Garden from taking her part of Mrs. 
Swipes, Mrs. Jones filled it very well. Two Strings to your Bow, 
gave us Madame Vestrts. who delighted with her charming voice and 
fascinating acting. — This evening, Seeing is Believing, Sweethearts

That amusing Comedy, All in the Wrong, was admirably acted 
here last night. Mr. C. Kemble, Mr. Jones, Miss Chester, Mrs. 
Chattbrley, &c. &c. distinguished themselves much, and received 
the most marked approbation from a genteel audience, amongst whom 
were the Duke and Duchess of Glotjchbster. — The house was thin. 

<£s!gligl) <©pera^ouge* 

The repetition of The Barber of Seville, at this house last night, 
was attended with as much success as on the former occasions, and 
Miss Harvey appeared to equal advantage. She is a very pleasing 
actress, as well as a superior vocalist, and there cannot be a doubt, 
but that in time, and under an able instructor, she will become every 
thing that could be wished for in an accomplished singer and perform- 
er. She possesses a perfect command of herself, and appears to have 
a lively perception, therefore her progress up the steeps of professional 
fame may be considered certain, and perhaps rapid if she devotes 
herself with ardour to the profession she has so auspiciously entered 
upon. Mr. Philips is said to have had her under his tuition but a 
short time, and if so, does his skill and assiduity great credit. She

Mr Farley had a crowded attendance last night at his Benefit. — 
)Ve mentioned the other day that a new candidate for dramatie fame 
made her dehut at this Theatre on Tuesday last, in the character of 
the IVtdoto Brady. We had not space at that time to say much of 
her, and therefore take this opportunity. Considering the difficulties 
which attend a first appearance, and that on the London boards, there 
is every reason to congratulate the fair debutante (who ia, we hear, 
a Mrs. IVfiLLBR, and widow of an officer) on her success. Her figure 
is small, but elegant, her countenance beautiful and animated : she 
possesses a voice soft and clear, an articulation distinct and expressive, 
and a manner vivacious,graceful,and unaffected ; to these qualifications 
may be added a delightful naivete. It was on the whole an admirable 
representation of the lively Widow, and the assumed part of Lieut. 
O'JVeale, was supported with great spirit. — She received great and 
deserved applause throughout. This lady will repeat the character 
on Wednesday next, being the Farewell Benefit of that amiable 
actress Miss Beaumont. — Prince Leopold -has kindlv intimated to 
Miss B. that his box was at her service on the occasion. Ptlessrs. Ce\- 
nor, and Cooke, have an excellent Comedy, &c. for this evening. 

<gngli$) <Opcra^ou£e* 

After Military Tactics, which was again favorably received, 
little Master Burke played an air on the violin very cleverly for so 
young a little creature. The Maid and the Magpie was then per- 
formed, and introduced in the character e-f Annette, that universal 
favorite Miss Kelly, for the first, time this season. Her^ acting 'was, 
as it ever is, stamped with the truest understanding of her assumed 
character ; aod, in this one, genuine feeling was never better pour- 
trayed. She was welcomed, with all the cordiality she so highly me- 
rited, by a most crowded audience. We regret to say all the other 
characters of this piece were indifferently supported, except those by 
Mr. Bartley, Mrs. Tayleure, and Mr. T. P. Cooke. A Mr. C. F. 
Young, from America, and a Mr.PERKTNs, made their first appearance. 
We must see more of them before their qualities can be fully judged of

Mr. Connor, Mr. T. P. Cooke, and, we believe, Miss Love, had 
a joint Benefit here last night. We were sotry to hear that " robbery" 
and " forgery," (not murder, happily) had been committed on Mr. 
Connor in respect of his tickets. — The house was' crowded to excess. 

<£iigli$) <£>pcra#ou3e* 

Mrss Harvey and Mr. Phllipps, were again most favorably re- 
ceived in The Barber of Seville, last night — There was a good house. 

An Opera, upon an extensive scale, requiring two orchestras, is to 
he produced here, and has had two general rehearsals; the music by 
Weber, which is very scientific and eilective ; each rehearsal has oc- 
cupied six hours. Mr. Braiiam is the principal character in it, and 
has paid particular attention to both rehearsals. The Overture to 
the Opera is by the same composer, and the same which was per- 
formed at the Oratorios last season with great applause. 

^ajmiatftet 3Tljcatre* 

The whole of the entertainments last night, were of a most mirth- 
creating description — just such as should always be found in this fa- 
vorite temple of humor. The first piece was Matrimony, in which 
Mr. Vining and Mrs. Chatterley sustained with excellent effect the 
characters of the imprisoned couple who are, by sympathy for a sup- 
posed mutual misfortune, brought back to love and forbearance towards 
each other. In that popular piece Sweethearts and Wives, Madame 
Vestris, Mrs. T. Hill, Mr. Vixing, and Mr. Liston, as usual de- 
lighted the audience in an extraordinary degree. The last portion of 
the performance was the new Farce of A Year in an Hour, in whieh 
Mr. Liston again kept up the horse-laugh he had so often before raised 
as Billy Lackaday. — There was a numerous audience — This evening, 
Rosina, Every One has his Fault, and Fish oat of Water,

Madame Catalan! was here again last night. It is not adding to 
her popularity, nor the interests of the Theatre, to make her uselessly 
the cause of excluding the persons on the free-list.

week, in consequence of the numerous attractive pieces that have 
been produced. — Messrs. Lancaster, Vale, King, Miss Johnstone, 
Miss Vincent, &c. acted extremely well. 

Davis's Amphitheatre — The splendid spectacle of 'I he Battle of

AV>. 815 Monday, July 12, 1824. Pn'^ Irf. 

Cogent <*Bardcn €fteatrc. 

In the Comedy of The Inconstant, Mr. C. Kemble acted Young Mirabel, 
and Mr. W. Farren his fond Papa, moat excellently. 

Theee was a numerous attendance here, on Saturday evening at The Maid 
and the Magpie, &c. The " attractive metal" abounds in this evening's bill. 

I^apmarfect €f)eatte> 

A Young Lady, (name unknown,) made ' her first appearance on any stage, 
on Saturday night, as Rosina, in the musical piece so called. She has quali- 
ties of voice that will, no doubt, render her useful in some departments, but it 
did not appear that she was equal to take leading vocal parts. Her first song 
was well executed, and encored ; but in those of a more difficult description, 
she failed to give the requisite effect. — The audience received her ven favora- 
bly. Mr. Melrose sang very pleasingly as Belville, and Mr. W. West and 
Mrs. C. Jones, acted William and Phoebe very effectively. In Every One has 
his Fault, there was much excellent acting ; and Mr. Liston, in Fish out of 
Water, had the laugh-raising power chiefly in his own keeping. 

SDrurp flane Cfteatm 

The Hypocrite, Madame Catalani, and The Revolt of the Greeks, were, 
the stimulants to a considerable attendance here on Saturday — The Family of 
the late Mr. Oxberry put in their claim to-uight to the benevolence of the 
public. 

The John Bull of yesterday has the following— " Speaking of Farren, 
whose Lord Ogleby is excellent, he reminds us of a story we rather believe we 
once before told in this Paper, but which is so apposite as to b.ar repeating — 
we mean that of a sign-painter, who, by dint of hard study, had attained to 
the power of painting a red lion ; and this he would do as well as Mr. Lons- 
dale would paint the Duke of Sussex ; or Mr. Drummond, Prince Leopold — 
at all events he pleased the bumpkins, and his lions were exceedingly fine ; and 
the consequence was, that the leading inn or ale-house in every circum-adjacent 
village, sported a red lion. At length, however, a customer appeared in the 
shape of a publican, who, just establishing himself, was anxious to begin bu- 
siness under the sign of the " Seftons Head ;" — " Don't do any such thing," 
said the painter, " there will be no room for the shoulders." " AVell," replied 
Boniface, ** what do you think of the Angel ?"— " The Devil !" answered the 
painter — M No : have no such signs as these"---" What shall I have V* asked 
the inn-keeper— V Why," says the painter, "it you ask my advice-, have a 
Red Lion !"— " No," said the inn-keeper, " I'll have no such thing ; there are 
Red Lions in every place twenty miles round— I'll have the Sefton's Head!" 
" Well," rejoined the artist, "if you will, you will— but when it is finished, 
it will be so like a Red Lion, you will not know the difference." The truth 
being, that the only substitute the village artist could make for the noble Earl 
was a Red Lion ! So with Farren— Lord Ogleby is his Red Lion ; and play 
what he will— high life or low life, serious or comic, he is invariably Lord 
Ogleby. To a theatre, therefore, which can afford, as the regular theatres 
can, to keep an actor, excellent in a particular line, to play those characters 
which he plays admirably. Farren is highly valuable— at the Haymarket he is 
not worth his salt ; and although Mr. Kenny, who is the best working dra- 
matist of the day, and Mr. Poole, (who is very little his inferior) toil and la- 
bour day and night, Sundays and all— (as we suppose they do)— in order to 
make new parts for Mr. Farren, they never will be able to produce a variety, 
for Red Lion he will be, and nothing hjtyt Red Lion in every character he per- 
sonates,"

Mr. C. Kemele and Miss F.-H. Kelly acted Romeo and Juliet, 
last night, with their usual excellence, Presumption has succeeded 
here in an uncommon degree ; although we think modesty is as pre- 
valent in this theatre as any one. This evening Mr. Taylor's Benefit. 

Miss Beaumont's Farewell. — It is with mixed feelings of regret 
and pleasure, that we find the young, and amiahle, and lovely Miss 
Beaumont, after a short theatrical career, about to quit the stage 
for ever. Our regret is caused by so soon losing a most pleasing and 
rising actress ; our pleasure arises from the conception that some event 
(honorable to herself) of a nature calculated to render her independent 
of the labours of a professional life, is about to take place, if it has 
not already happened, We are convinced that nothing but excellent 
motives have led to this unlooked for circumstance ; and we shall, and 
every one who has learned Miss Beaumont's character, will, we are 
sure, ever be happy to hear of the private comfort and happiness of a 
young lady whose early display of talent was devoted to the most vir- 
tuous purposes that nature could prompt. 

SDrurn Stane Cfpatrr. 

The Family of the late Mr. Oxberry had a good house last night.

A full house, and much amusement last night. — This evening we 
have Love Laughs at Locksmiths, Exchange no Robbery, &c. 

Last night was one of the most distinguished of any for manv 
seasons at this theatre. The Opera of Guy JUannering was repre- 
sented in as excellent a style as ever it was at either of the national 
theatres ; and when we say that Mr. Br a ham was there a3 Henry 
Bertram, Miss Povey, as Julia Mannering, Mr. Rayner. as Dandie 
Dinmont. and Mrs. Ecerton, as Meg JJerrilies, we. only speak of 
well known first-rate talent ; but there Vis the debut of a Miss Noel, 
who has for some tim^ been most justly a great favorite at Bath. She 
appeared as Miss Bertram, and made a highly favorable impression 
on a very impartial audience. She is in fact a sweet singer, very much 
in the style of Miss M. Tree, some of whose celebrated songs she 
gave with the very best effect, and had several warm and justly me- 
rited encores. She has an interesting figure and countenance ; and 
altogether we think her a decided valuable acquisition to this theatre, 
Mr. Power acted Col Mannering admirably ; and Mr. Tayleure's 
Dominie Sampson was of a nature to raise him in the opinion of the 
public. As to Mrs. Egerton, she is without doubt, the best M«* 
JKemlies on the stage.—All were most favorably received,

Mr. Tavlor had his Benefit last night. — There was a good house. 
Miss Beaumont, it will be seen, bids adieu this evening to the stage. 
This interesting young lady highly deserves the last tribute of respect 
and favor of the public. We hear she is about to be married to a 
Mr. Owen, a gentleman of private worth, and good property. 

<£ngli£f) Opcra^oiufc 

In the musical drama of The Devil's Bridge, Mr. Braham made 
his second appearance here this season, in his favorite character of 
Count Belino, and finely executed the airs allotted to him. Bliss 
Noel, also on this occasion, was seen for the second time by a London 
audience, and charmingly acquitted herself iw the part of Rosalvina. 
Miss Kelly played Lauretta excellently ; and Miss Povev as Claudine, 
sang very pleasingly. Mr. Bennett, from Covent Garden, acted 
Marcelli, but surely this is not the line of character for which he is 
best qualified. — The new Pantomime followed and amused highly. 

$?apmarftet Cfjeatre. 

The performances of last night, gave infinite delight to a numerous 
audience. We regret that until after the closing of the winter thea- 
tres, we cannot say every thing we wish of these summer theatres — 
but all in good time. Acted here to-night, Sweethearts and Wives, 
Two Strings to your Bow, with Rosina.

Madame Catalani's airs were resorted to last night pretty nu- 
merously. We did not ascertain the temperature of the theatre, but 
imagine it must have been at fever heat by Fahrenheit. A sister of 
Miss Paton's is to appear here to-morrow as Letitia Hardy. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

My dear Observer— -You are too much of an optimist. — In the 
theatrical trorld whatever is — is not right. Could there be a stronger 
instance of this, than for an actor to have the assurance to invent a 
cock and bull story about, his pocket being picked of benefit-tickets, 
merely to prevent some poor devils of tradesmen from selling the 
tickets they had taken in exchange for their butter or bacon, for 
whatever they can get instead of losing the whole amount. Every 
body knows that a Benefit is seldom any thing but a meeting of cre- 
ditors ; and I must say, therefore, this trickery is most unfair; and 
if I see any more of it, the offenders may rely upon being shewn up.

The performance at this house last night was for the benefit of 
Miss Beaumont. We understand the house was full, and that Miss 
Beaumont was favorably received. The British Press of this morn- 
ing, says — " Mrs. Miller appeared for the second time as the Widow 
Brady ; and the spirit with which she sustained the character fully 
justify the remarks we made on her debut. Her manner reminded ns 
very much of Mrs. Jordan ; indeed we think she comes nearer to her 
than any one now on the stage. Mrs. Miller could not have a better 
model. Miss Lacy was exceedingly affecting as Ella Rosenberg. Wo 
have never seen the part better acted ; and the audience testified their 
feeling of it by the applause which they bestowed. " 

Miss Harvey appeared last night as Rosetta, in the Opera of Love 
hi a Village. She fully sustained the reputation she had acquited by 
her foimer performance of Rosina. In the duets with Mr. Braham, 
and " Together let us range the fields*' with Mr. Philipps, she evinced 
a sedulously-cultivated taste, and displayed a brilliancy of tones ex- 
ceedingly pleasing and powerful. Mr. Philipps sang with much spirit 
and effect : he was warmly applauded in the " Blooming Rose," which 
is a beautiful piece of composition, musical as well as poetical. Mr. 
Braham sang as usual with much unrivalled excellence. 

J^apmarftet GLfytattc. 

The pieces performed at this Theatre, last night, were highly a- 
musing. In Rosina, a Young lady, made her second appearance, as 
the facinating heroine of this pretty musical entertainment, and wa« 
again very favorably received. This evening She Stoops to Conquer, 
%Mrs. Smith, and Simpson and Co. 

jbrurp lane €ljcatrc. 

The performances of last night, were Tivo Wives, Madame Ca- 
talani's singing, The Liar, and The Revolt of the Greeks. 

Sadler's Wells — The performances of The Ravois of Orleans, and 
Abdellac the Terrific ! draw numerous and fashionable audiences. 

A NEW TRAGEDY.— Although Covent Garden Theatre closes its season 
on Saturday the 17th instant, yet it is, we hear, to he re-opened on the follow- 
ing Monday, for the express purpos e of presenting for the first time, anew 
Tragedy, which is, we understand, from the pen of a gentleman of known 
literary talent : and, further, we learn that Mr. H. Johnson is to appear in 
this piece in a principal character. Public curiosity is in no small degree ex- 
cited by an event so uncommon, as an author appealing to an audience in favor 
of his muse, at so unusual a period, and at one of our national theatres. 

A Report has reached this office that Mr. Kean has broke a blood-vessel, but 
where or he-w we have not vet heard.

Cogent harden €t)eatre. 

Mr. Claremont and Mr. J. Isaacs, had a numerous attendance 
last night at their Benefit. 

The following article was written for yesterday's number, but did 
not arrive in time at the office. — Miss Beaumont's " Farewell Benefit" 
took place last night, (Wednesday) and was attended by a most nu- 
merous and genteel audience. This young lady has had but a short 
theatrical career ; and the excellent manner in which she gave the 
songs and acted the part of Luciana, in The Comedy of Errors, 
which character she supported for the first time, shewed what we 
might have expected from her future performances, had she remained 
on the stage. She has now retired to private life, where we wish her 
virtues as amply rewarded as her lite professional qualities would 
have been had she continued in her public ^sphere She bade adieu in 
an interesting manner, and the audience appeared to feel regret on 
the occasion ; for by her retirement, Coven t Garden Theatre has lost 
one of its most pleasing ornaments. 

We understand, from the best authority, that the author of the 
new Tragedy forthcoming at Covent-garden theatre on Monday next, 
is Mr. Penn, the lineal descendant from the celebrated individul who 
settled the province in America called Pennsylvania. 

Military Tactics, The Maid and the Magpie, and Presumption, 
were the entertainments, and in the course of the evening there was a 
crowded houpe. The first piece went off very pleasantly : and in the 
next one Miss Kellx, as Annette, again gave the most interesting 
effect to the character. Mr. T. P. Cooke, as the terrific creation in 
the latter piece, acted it with all his usnal extraordinary imprcssive- 
ness in the part. 

Der Freschutz is preparing rapidly — It is much talked of. 

This mirth-promoting pleasant theatre, afforded, as usual, great 
entertainment to a considerable audience. — Acted to-rirght, a new 
Comedy, entitled Married and Single, with My Grandmother, and 
A Year in an Hour. 

SDrurp Hane C^atre. 

Miss Isabella Paton appeared on these boards for the first time, 
last night, as Letitia Hardy, in the Comedy of The Belle's Strata- 
gem. She acted with spirit and discrimination, and received a very 
flattering reception.

*• Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. S2I Saturday, July 17, 1824. Price Id. 

After My Grandmother , last night, a new three act Comedy was 
performed for the first time, called Married and Single. The whole 
piece is full of bustle and incident; which was well supported by Mr. 
Farrb\ t , Mr. Cooper, Mr. West, Mr. Vining, Mr. Lee, Mrs. 0. 
Jones, Mrs. Glover, Mrs. T. Hill, &c. It was announced for this 
evening, by Mr. Farren, without a dissenting voice. It is by Mr. Poole. 

€ngli$} <©prra4pou£e* 

In The Barber of Seville, Miss Harvey and Mr. Philipps were as 
successful as before ; and the whole Opera gratified in a high degiee. 

€&hcnt 4Btort>en €!jeatre. 

This Theatre closes its season to-night with Much Ado about No- 
thing, and Charles the Second, the former one of the most success- 
fully acted Comedies of our immortal Bud that has been presented 
here of late. Mr. C. Kemble and Miss Chester shine eminently irt 
the characters of Benedick and Beatrice, and the other parts are all 
most ably sustained. That pleasant new production, Charles the 
Second, has proved very attractive. Mr. Fawcett will, of course, 
deliver the usual Farewell Address. Much has been done in this 
theatre for the gratification of the public ; and we can say from our 
own observation, that if it has not been an eminently successful 
season, there have been sufficient indications of a due appreciation on 
the part of the public, of the exertions made for their entertainment. 

SDrurp Hane €!)catre. 

Miss L. Paton repeated the character of Letitia Hardy, in the 
Comedy of The Belle's Stratagem, with equal effect to that of her 
performance on the previous night. We think very favorably of tbis 
young lady's talents : she has spirit, and a just understanding of 
her author, and very engaging personal qualities : but she retains a 
little of the northern accent, that should be got rid of as much as 
possible to fit her thoroughly for the English stage. We have uo 
doubt that Miss L. Paton will become a favoiite with the public. — 
She is, we believe, only 17 or 18 years of age. Her sister, our fa- 
vorite vocalist, resumes her statiou very shortly at the Haymarket 
Theatre. There are rumours respecting this latter young lady's pri- 
vate conduct, which we should deeply lament were they true — but, 
they are false, the public may rely on it. We have from the very 
commencement of Miss Paton's- career down to the present moment, 
closely regarded her behaviour, and we have the best reason for con* 
eluding that she is in every respect a young lady as amiable as she ii 
highly gifted in respect to talent.

The Opera of Gup Manner in g was performed at this Theatre, en 
Saturday evening. Miss Noel sustained the part of Lucy Bertram 
with moch talent, and was loudly and deservedly encored in the beau- 
tiful long " Home, Sweet Home." The performance of Mrs. Eobrtox, 
as Meg Merrilies, is always excellent and effective. Mr. Br a ham 
jnng almost divinely, and was encored, in the song that never misers

This Theatre closed its season on Saturday to a numerous audi-

which was, in general, admirably acted, particularly in the parts of 
Benedick and Beatrice, by Mr. C. Kemble, and Miss Chester. Afc 
the conclusion of the Comedy, Mr. Fawcett appeared, and delivered 
the following Farewell Address. 

■' Ladies and Gentlemen — Our season closing with the representation* of 
this evening, I come, on the part of th« Proprietors, to ofl\?r you their sincere 
thanks for the distinguished patronage with which yoa have honored this The- 
»tr». The new embellishments I am happy to a&\, , have given universal satis- 
faction. Our success iu the attempt to revive a taste for comedy has answered 
•ur most sanguine expectations, while our efforts to give additional effect to ths 
plays of Shakepeare must, we trust, have convinced you of our love and renar- 
tion for the greatest dramatic poet that ever charmed or instructed mankind. 

" In short, when I call to your recellection, that we have, in the course of 

the present season, produced thirteen new pieces, besides many revivals, I truat 

you will allow that neither pains nor expense have been spared, to make the en* 

tertainmentg of Covent Garden Theatre worthy of the greatest nation in th» 

world. 

44 It only remains to assure you, that the vacation will be entirely devoted t*> 
your future entertainments and convenience, and that no efforts will be spared 
to ensure a continuance of your favour. And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, on 
the part of tha Proprietors, of myself, and all the other performers, until the 
37th of September, I most respectfully bid you farewell."

This Theatre was respectably attended last night, to sec Military 
Tactics, the Miller's Maid, and Presumption. In the latter piece, 
Mr. Bennett and Mr. T. P, Cooke, acted uncommonly well.

A Benefit was taken at this Theatre last night, by Mr. Mears 
and Mr. Smithson, on which occasion Mr. Penn's Historical Tragedy 
of the Battle of Eddington, was represented. This Piece was written 
aud published in the year 1706, and although it was axted, it does 
not appear that it was stamped with any marks of popularity. The 
performance of last night was hardly to be considered as offering a 
lair criterion of its merits as a stage piece, because many of the per- 
formers were apparently r.ot of the first order of actors. — It was re- 
ceived with a deal of good humor. — The house was nearly full. 

JJapmatfeet €t)eatre. 

The new Comedy, and Sweethearts and Wives, drew an excellent 
house, last night. In the former piece, Mr. W. Farren, as the old 
beau, was very good ; the other characters were equally well sustain- 
ed. Mr. Liston, Miss Chester, and Madame Vestris, were much 
applauded in the latter piece. 

That delightful vocalist, Miss Paton, makes her first appearance 
this season, to-night, as Susanna, in the Marriage of Figaro. 

SDrurp %ant theatre. 

She Stoops to Conquer was performed last night, with the novelty 
of Miss Isabella Paton, as Miss Hardcastle, and Mr. Harley, as 
Tony Lumpkin, each for the first time. Miss I. Paton further proved 
her claims to notice by her acting on this occasion, which was marked 
by many of those points of excellence which her instructress, Mrs. 
Davison, was accustomed to display. She was very favorably re- 
ceived ; as was Mr. Harley, in Tony, which part he represented 
with an unceasing strain of humor ; and afterwards in the comic piece 
of Two Wives, he sustained the various assumed characters with a 
flow of fun that kept tne house in continued mirth. Miss S. Booth, 
in the Falls of Clyde, and also Mr. Knight and Mr. Archer, most 

ably acted their several parts. This house closes on Monday next.

Last night, in Military Tactics, Mr. Bartley, Mr. Power, Mr. 
Pearman, and Miss Povey, were very amusing ; after which, the 
comic hurletta of Free and Easy was performed, in which Mr. Ray- 
ner appeared as Ralph, and Mr. W. Chapman, as Michael, each for 
the first time, and acquitted themselves with great credit. The other 
characters were supported in a most effective manner, particularly 
that of Sir John Freeman, hy Mr- Wrench, and Gertrude, hy 
Miss Kelly. 

The Pantomime concluded the evening's amusements; its success is 
entirely owing to the great exertions of Messrs. J S. Grimaldt, Barnes, 
Ellar, and Miss Romer. — The house was respectahly filled. 

DER FREISCHUTZ. 

A short detail of ihc Plot of this eclehrated German Opera, may 
not he uninteresting to our readers. It is be found in the third vo- 
lume of a work, entitled " Popular Traditions of the Northern Na- 
tions'' where it is given under the name of the " Fatal Marksman." 
The main incident relates to a well known German supersition, ic- 
specting the interference of infernal agency in the preparation of un- 
erring bullets ; and the fatal issue of a contest for the love of a fair 
Bohemian peasant, whose admirer makes use of them at a required 
trial of skill, in which her hand, and the ranger ship of the forest, is 
the destined prize. The scene, where the bullets are cast, is said to 
be replete with mystic horrors, and something very extraordinary, 
both in music and scenic effect, may be expected. Indeed, the whole 
of the music is of the most superior description, and has rendered 
this Opera very popular in Germany and Holland. 

The English Opera-House is closed this evening, for the purpose 
of obtaining a JS T ight Rehearsal, without which, it would have been 
next to impossible for the Opera to be produced on Thursday evening.

Married and Single was repeated here last night, to a full house 
in all parts. This Comedy is rendered very pleasing, owing to the

sentation ; Mr. W. West's Ferret deserves much praise ; as does 
Mr. Cooper's JWilford. Scamper, by Mr. Vining, and Capt. & Rapper t 
by Mr. Lee, are rendered very amusing by those gentlemen. Mrs. 
Glover, Airs. T. Hill, Mrs. Jones, and Mrs. Covenev, had their 
share of applause. 

The Marriage of Figaro followed, and introduced Mr. Wilkinson, 
for the first time, in the character of Antonio ; he was very well re- 
received. Miss Paton also made her debut this season as Susanna. 
She sang delightfully, and was highly applauded, particularly in f Lo, 
Hear the Gentle Lark !" 

A new Comic Opera is in rehearsal, and will be produced as soon 
as possible. 



$>mt# %ant Cfjeatrcv 

The very plesant Comedy of The Poor Gentleman was acted here 
last night. This Play does great credit to its author, Mr. Colman, 
who has kindled by the effect of some of his chaiacters in it, a genial 
feeling, and raised an agreeable tone of mind that suit well our En- 
glish turn, which loves the honest and frank expression of the dictates 
of the heart, and the pervading good humor of honesty and indepen- 
dence. There is no author, living or dead, who has written so pe- 
culiarly home (excuse the expression) to our national impressions and 
character as George Colman, the Younger; and so long as he ad- 
hered to the comic vein, we have admired the productions of his pen 
as transcendently calculated to enliven and improve. On the present 
occasion Mr. Dowton played Sir Robert Bramble ; if we could forget 
Mr. Munden, we would say he acted it well; but Mr. Dowton cannot 
convey the peculiar turn of Sir Robert's character, within the unctuous 
humor of his predecessor* There was much to admire in the manner 
in which the whole Comedy was performed, particularly in Mr. Ellis- 
ton's Frederick, Mr. Harley's Ollapod, and Mr. Knight's Stephen 
Harrowby. 

Mathews, we understand, has announced his intention of being 
" At Home" on Friday and Saturday next, at Brighton. Every place 
in the Theatre, that could be taken, is bespoke. — British Press.

SDcurp Sane Cijcatre. 

The Hypocrite has stood its ground well, it was again acted last 
night, and again Mr. Dowton gave a most striking representation of 
the artful villain, who, under a sanctified exterior, conceals the 
blackest heart a human being ever possessed. We have frequently 
observed, and again repeat it, that this Play does serious injury to 
the cause of religion. 

Bliss I. Paton, takes a Benefit at this Theatre on Monday next, 
when The Country Girl, a Masqurade , and other entertainments will 
be performed. 

I^ap^marfcct €$catte. 

Whilst light humor is the pervading character of the pieces pro- 
duced here, its reputation derived from the olden time, is sustained, 
and we revisit it with a smile. Last night the entertainments were 
Married and Single, with the Opera of The Lord of the Manor. — 
On our arrival at the door, we found a notice posted, stating the sud- 
den indisposition of Mr. Liston, and that Mr. Wilkinson, had, at a 
short notice, undertaken to perform the part of Moll Flaggon, and 
" hoped, that he should meet with that indulgence which had hitherto 
been granted on such occasions." The new Comedy wa3 most flatter- 
ingly received by a full house. In the Opera, Mr. Melrose, in the 
song of The Beautiful Maid, met some slight opposition. Madame 
Vestri3 was encored in " Once a Maiden Spring Roses was Wear- 
ing" " <A Knight, Oh, my Story is True,'* and " The Dashing white 
Serjeant.'* On the appearance of Mr. Wilkinson, as Moll, he was 
met by the audience in the most unfriendly manner. — He bowed, they 
called " Liston ! Off ! off !" Mr. Vining advanced, and in a neat man- 
ner explained the cause of Mr. Liston's absence. The piece proceed- 
ed without further opposition.

The German Opera of Der Freischutz ; or, the Seventh Bullet f 
*»■ produced in this country for the first time last night, at this 
theatre. It is of a highly melo-drainatic character, as the following 
outline of the Story will shew : — Casper and Rodolph are two hunts- 
men in the service of Ottocar, a Bohemian Prince. These young men 
are livals in the regard of their master, and Casper has a further 
canse of hatred for Rodolph, arising from his being beloved by Agnes, 
a fair maiden of the village. The former to gratify his bad disposi- 
tion, has devoted himself to Zamiel, the Daemon of the Wood, who 
has supplied him with charmed bullets that always hit the mark ; and 
also thro' the Daemon's aid, obtains the destruction of Rodolph's fame 
as a marksman, whose rifle is constantly unsuccessful. An institution 
has been formed in the village by the Prince, that once a year a Trial 
Shot should take place, and the victor be rewarded with the maiden 
he loves, and a portion. From the recent bad fortune he has had 
with his rifle, Rodolph dreads the trial which is to take place on the 
following day, and looks forward with grief to the loss of his Jlgnes. 
Casper eager to destroy his rival, and sacrifice him to the Daemon, in 
order to save himself, works upon his passion for this girl, so as to 
draw him into an impious reliance on preternatural means for attain* 
ing his wishes. He induces, Rodolph, to join him in the Damon's 
haunt, and by magic spells to obtain the charmed bullets. Seven is the 
number granted by the evil spirit, three of which Casper retains, and 
gives the other four to Rodolph. The Prince having commanded the 
latter to fire frequently in a subsequent cbace, he has only the seventh 
Bullet left, and dreadi lest he should lose that before the hour of the 
trial of skill. At last, however, that period arrives, and the seventh 
Bullet remains in Rodolph's possession, but Casper thinking Rodolph 
has fired away all his charmed bullets, is preparing for a triumph be- 
fore Agnes and the whole, and strays about looking for her arrival at 
the moment Rodolph aims at the bird pointed out — Kodolph fires, bat 
the bullet instead of hitting the bird, pierces Casper, who, falling, Is 
received by the Daemon as his victim by agreement, and is borne off 
amidst a shower of fire; whilst the villagers, nothing daunted, ad- 
vance and surround their Prince, who gives the fair Agnes to her 
lover Rodolph. A most crowded and genteel audience received the 
whole with very animated applause.— The music is beautiful. 

Haymakket — There was a good house last night, to Bee Jl Day 
after the JVedding, Married and Single, and The Beggar's Opera. 

Drury Lane — The Dramatist, a Pastoral Ballet, and The Citizen, 
were perfoiraed last night. Miss I. Paton acted Maria very cleverly. ■

After the amusing little piece of Jlfrs. S?mth, the new three-act 
Comedy of Jlarried and Single was repeated, and amused in a con- 
siderable degree. Mr. W. Farren acts the old Beau very humo- 
rously, and looks the would-be young fool excellently. In Mrs, C. 
Jones be has a rib of no common capacity ; and in Mr. Cooper a 
nephew that may well put his claims on the right side of his grand 
climateric, to the route.- Mr. W. West, in Ferret, looks very like 
some of those young Attornies, who are to be met with at certaiu 
busy times in Peele's coffee-house. Ke has all their pertness, self- 
sufficiency, and affectation. He seems as if he were bred and born, 
and educated in the purlieus of Lyon's-Inn. In short, we thought we 
perceived a qualm come over some young fashionables, who possibly 
were put in mind of Mr. Snipp's bill up to midsummer, and other 
horrible things. 

<£ngli$) <9pcra#ou0\\ 

This house is the chosen region of the romantic. The Vampire, 
if we recollect right, was the first of a species of drama produced 
here, which has since become periodical Frankenstein partook of 
the same wild and original character, and now we have Der Frei- 
schutz, which surpasses both in novelty. The music, alone, is suffi- 
cient to render it popular. We would advise the dramatist to do Mr. 
Coleridge's Christabelle into a melo-drama : the difficulty would be 
in getting an adequate representative for the immortal " mastiff bitch," 
otherwise this " wild and singularly, original, and beautiful poem/' 
according to poor Lord Byron, would give full scope to the exercise 
of Mr. T. P. Cooke's talents. If we might hint at improvement in 
Der Freischnts, Ave think the conclusion is exceedingly abrupt. — 
After the Daemon walks off with Caspar, the rest of the dramatis 
persona? join hands and begin singing with the greatest composure : 
there should be some intervening business. We had the pleasure of 
noticing Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Kent, in a private box, 
though incog ; Lady Guilford, Lady Beauchamp, Sir W. Congreve ; 
and large parties of persons of distinction, both English and German, 
filled the boxes.

lnThe Belle's Stratagem, Mr. Ellistovs Boricourt, Mr. Dowton's 
Old Hardy, and Miss Isabella Paton's Letitia Hardy, were emi- 
nently successful. The Ballet was much admired, and Air. IJarley,

The continued attraction of the Opera of Dcr Freticftutz, Vvas 
evinced on Saturday evening bv the coucourse of persons assembled at 
an early hour, at all the dcors. This piece is to be viewed more as a 
vehicle for music, than as a drama of much interest, although theic 
is a terrific character about it that may absorb attention in a high de- 
gree. The scene of The Wolfs Glen,'by Moonlight, and the horrors 
there exhibited, are calculated to impress the mind with a complete 
idea of the whole art and mystery of Daemon-raising. A reference to 
the description in the play-bill of this scene, will shew how the ele- 
ments themselves, and ail the other resources of witchery, are brought 
to assist in this extraordinary scene. Pieces of the most delightful 
harmony are scattered through this Opera; and it, altogether, is a 
most peculiar performance. Military Tactics followed, and amused 
much. 

SDi'tiru %ant Cftcatrc. 

That admirable vocalist, Madame Catalani, took a Benefit here 
on Saturday night, which was attended by a very numerous and gen- 
teel company. 

This evening the Theatre closes a season prolonged to an unusual 
period — a season, of which Mr. Ellisto.v can truly say, he has had 
throughout the greater part, distinguished patronage. On this occa- 
sion f%Jiss Isabella Paton takes hetjirst Benefit since her appearance 
on the stage. Her success as a comic actress, has been eminent in 
the few characters which she has yet riifdxrr taken ; and her youth and 
talents give token of a long and Brilliant career. She plays to-night 
a character in which" she has not been seen, and it is one that is cal- 
culated to display her in a very favourable point of view. 

The performances here on Saturday evening, were i/tfarried and 

Single, Loch and'Key, and Katharine ahd Petruchio. In the last 
piece, Miss Chester and Mr. Cooper sustained the characters of 
saucy Kate, and the bold Petruchio, with great spirit and effect. — 
The house was well attended. 

Sadler's Wells. — This Theatre has fallen into the hands of Mr. 
Grimaldi and Mr. Hughes, who open it this evening. — It is thus likely 
to become again a favorite place of resort. 

Vauxhall.- — These enchanting Gardens are to be open to-ni^ht.— • 
The weather is must propitious.

No 829 Tuesday, July 27 , 1824. Price U. 



Zterc Freischutz is the subject of general conversation. One loun* 
ger asks another, " Have you seen that singular affair at the English 
Opera-House V — " Oh, do Pa, let us go and sec Friz — Friz— what 
do you call it V says City Mies.— — " Lard, now, I vondcr vhat 
that 'ere thingumbob queer Hoperer is all about," exclaims a Wapping 
land-lady. In short, from St James's to St. Catherine's, you will hear 
it spoken of. Such is the influence of music, and--cw7 spirits ! The 
last scene of this piece is wonderfully improved. We noticed in the 
private boxes, the Earl of Craven, Lady Scott Douglas, Mr. Secretary 
Peel, Mrs. Peel ; and in the dress-circle, which was crowded with 
fashionably attired females, Lady Morres Gore, Lady Bernard, Lady 
Ravensworth, Lord Radstock, Countess Mangden, Col. Vaughan, Mr. 
Calcraft, M. P. Mr. P. Grenfell, M. P. and numerous other distin- 
guished parties which we cannot particularise. The Overtinc, and 
one of Mr. Braham's eongs, were encored— The house was filled in 
every part. 

There was a very crowded house last night, to see Twelve Pre* 
cisely, Married and Single, and Sweethearts and Wives. The se- 
cond piece ought to have been compressed to two acts.— -The audience 
seemed to be highly entertained. 



2)rucp Hane €l)eatre. 

This Theatre concluded its season, last night, with the Comedy of 
Know your Own Mind, the Farce of Turn Out, and a Masquerade. 
The play-bills announced that these performances were for the Benefit 
of Miss Isabella Paton, but they were foi the joint Benefit of that 
young lady and the Proprietor. The house filled very well in the course 
of the evening, and much amusement was derived from the various en- 
tertainments. Miss I. Paton represented Lady Ball, and exhibited a 
just conception of the character, with a considerable felicity of exe- 
cution. It is a part that requires a perpetual flow of spirits, and a 
pointed style of delivery and manner, and these requisites Miss I. 
Paton put forth in a manner that frequently elicited animated applause, 
and she sang an air with ao much taste as to merit the warm encore 
she received. This young lady gives promise of being a permanent 
favorite of the public ; and more particularly po s because she ever

ti 



seems absorbed in her character, without any thought of self breaking 
out through her style. No one can he a good actor or actress, with- 
out possessing this entire abstraction from every thing bat the cha- 
racter filled. Let Miss I. Patox continue closely to follow the rules 
which her admirable instructor, Mr. Chapman, has laid down, and 
there is no fear of her entire success. In the Farce, Miss S. Booth, 
Mr. Dowton, Mr. Harley, and Mr. Knight, amused greatly. The 
Masquerade was well enough — there were some pleasant songs. Mr. 
Harley was encored in " The Humours of JMoulsey Hurst" Miss 
Paton walked the minuet do la cour with Mr. Noble, with the utmost 
grace and elegance. 

■Mr. Ellistox appeared between the Comedy and Farce, and spoke 
the following Address. 

Ladies and Gentle: en, 

I cannot allow flue present opportunity to pass without again 
congratulating you and myself on the prosperous state of the ailairs 
of this Theatre. Instead of having added to the debts of the Thea- 
tre, by your kindness, means have been found materially to reduce the 
old debts.... I hope I am sufficiently well known to the public, my ge- 
nerous patrons, to be believed, when I state, that under these cir- 
cumstances, I shall not fail to revive pieces which are established fa- 
vorites, and also to introduce to your notice others unknown to you, 
but worthy of your patronage. I hope, Ladies and Gentlemen, by 
next September, to offer to you several new pieces worthy of you and 
this great national Theatre. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have the ho- 
nour to offer you all my most hearty thanks for your kindness, and to 
bid you a most affectionate farewell." 

On Sunday, Mr. Kean left town, In his travelling carriage, accom- 
panied by Mr. R. Phillips, for Holyhead ; from thence he proceeds to 
Dublin. 

Mr. Macready, has, it is said, been engaged by Mr. M'Donnell to 
perform a certain number of nights at the Cork theatre ; he is to ap- 
pear during the assizes. 

TO CORRESPONDENTS. 

We have to apologise to many friends, whose favors we have been unable to 
insert or notice, from so many Theatres being- open at one time. We shall 
soon be at liberty to attend to all our Correspondents , but we particularly re- 
quest that their letters may be temperate and brief.

After Der Freischutz, which again attracted in an extraordinary 
degiee, the Farce of Gretna Green was performed in the most amus- 
ing manner. The acting of Miss Kelly and Mr. Wrench, as Betty 
Finikin and Mr. Jenkins, is inimitable, and they were laughed at 
and applauded * to the very echo.'— The house was crowded to excess. 



^apmarhct Qfytatte. 

The varied and amusing character of the performances at this 
house, ensure it a high degiee of favor from the lovers of mirth.— 
The musical Farce of The Padlock was the first piece, in which that 
charming vocalist, Miss Paton, sang in the* most delightful manner. 
Miss Love, also, although turned into a little male creature, lost hut 
few of her attractions. Mr. Williams made a good Diego, and Mr. 
West was a clever JUungo. Mr. Harley in the following piece of 
The Young Quaker, appeared here for the first time this season, as 
Spatterdash, and was received in the way he ever is, most cordially. 
The whole of this piece was well performed, particularly by Mr. Vi- 
KtNG, Mr. Farren, Mr. Harley, and Miss Chester. The Two 
Pages of Frederick the Great was the last on the list, and was admi- 
rably acted. — There was a numerous audience. 

A new Comic Opera is in preparation. 

Signor Rossini quitted London on Monday night, on his way to the 
Continent. He, with a party of friends, sat down to a farewell din- 
ner ; but behold ! an unexpected guest made his appearance, insti- 
gated by one of those vulgar creatures called <rreditore, who, it ap- 
peared, had no soul for music, and chose that unlucky hour to press 
a disputed debt — il maestro paused, on one side he felt inclined to re- 
sist, give bail, &c. ; on the other, the dinner fumes titilated his ol- 
factory nerves — unable to resist, the disputed claim was discharged, 
harmony restored, and il maestro again looked gay, and mirth and 
hilarity reigned until the hour of parting. 

The young lady known to the public as Miss Beaumont, who re- 
cently bade farewell at Covent Garden Theatre, was married on Sa- 
turday last to Mr. George Owen, of the Secretary's Office, East

these nights his songs were accompanied by a full orchestra, and the 
effect produced was so superior to the accompaniment of a single piano-

Every body will go and see Der I* jieischutz, once; — almost 
every body will go at second time — to be again delighted with the 
music, and re-horrified with the incantation. The whole scene is now 
most appalling and interesting, the ravens and bats flit about dis- 
mally. The wild chace in the air, with the skeleton horsemen, &c. 
are powerfully effective. The whole arrangement of 1 he casting the 
charmed balls, is decidedly the ne plus ultra of the terrific. We 
saw Lord Uxbridgo, the Countess of Guilford, (a 2nd time,) Ladies 
Acton, Berwick, Granville Somerset, Cockburn, Sheffield, Honora- 
ble Mrs. JH ope, Hon. Mrs. Knight, Hon. Mr*. Herbert, Sir Lewis 
Miller, Cavendish Bradshaw Esq. Sir George Barclay, and 'numerous 
other parties of the first distinction : and all assembled at the early 
hour of seven, to hear the celebrated Overture. 

J^ap^marftet €$catra. 

Last night, The Beggar's Opera, Killing 710 Murder, and Mar- 
ried and Single, were the announced pieces. Miss Patox, however, 
who was to have played Polly, in the Opera, could not appear in con- 
sequence of indisposition, and Mr. T. Dibden* in making the apology, 
and proposing other performances, found the audience very much dis- 
satisfied — so much so, that the representation of The Beggar's 
Opera was obliged to take place, as they would not be disappointed 
by not having the pleasure to see Madame Vestris. Mrs. T.Hill 
undertook Miss Paton's part, and sang some of the airs pretty well, 
and altogether deserved much praise for her readiness and desire to 
please. Madame Vesthis looked as engaging as her masculine attire 
wotld permit her, and sang charmingly, but not like a Macheath. lu 
the Farce, Mr. Liston, as usual, amused the audience highly in the 
character of Apollo Belvi, particularly in the dancing-duet with Mr. 
Harley, in which he made a faux pas, and fell upon his hands and 
knees. The only damage he received was a considerable breach in his 
inexpressibles, which occasioned peals of laughter, and he was ac- 
tually compelled by the audience to repeat the dance in this condi- 
tion ! Our old friend, Harley, as Billy Buskin, went through his 
metamorphoses to the great entertainment of the house ; — could 
he not, by the bye, get a more human-looking wig than that which 
he wore as the hair-dresser? — it is decidedly too outre. The house 
was full of genteel people, and we anticipate a flourishing campaign 
this season.

During the interval between the pieces at the Cobourg Theatre, on 
Monday night, a ruffian in the gallery, threw a large stone ginger- 
beer bottle with the greatest violence into the pit ; the bottle struck 
the head of an eldeily female, who, stunned by the blow, nearly 
fainted ; some friends near her took off her bonnet and cap,which were 
deluged ia blood. The sinferer was carried out of the theatre, and an 
universal cry prevailed throughout the house for the detection of the 
miscreant, but unfortunately for the end of justice, he escaped in the 
confusion. 

Mr. Fhilipps, of the English Opera House, gives a Lecture on 
Singing and Vocal Music at the Argyll Rooms to-morrow. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir — Seeing a short query in your useful publication of yesterday, 
as to whether a new performer, making a first appearance in a new 
character, has not a right to a certain number of orders. I beg to 
inform your correspondent, that the " order" is altogether a matter 
of courtesy from the proprietors, and that he must be extremely ig- 
norant of theatrical affairs in proposing the question, when it is known 
that there are times when gratuitous admissions keep money from 
the doors /and which would evidently be the case now, during the suc- 
cessful career of Der Freischutz at one of •' our summer theatres." 

I am, Sir, your's obediently, 

AN OLD STAGER. 



To the Editor of The Theatrieal Observer, 

Sir — Observing the number of cases of Hydrophobia, and being a 
great play-goer, I beg to state that I hope none of our Managers 
will, for the present, get up " The Forest of Bondy ; or, the Dog of 
Mohtargis" lest the canine performer in the piece should prove mad, 
and not only bite Captain Aubri, but the other persons of .the drama, 
and perhaps fly at the audience ! 

Your's, P. P. 

To Mister Editor. 

Sir, 

You'll exkuse me, but, Sir, seeing as how you've a vast to do 
about the theaturs, and it being as now cruel hot weather for them 
'ere places, you'll exkuse me, but as I'm a poor widow out o' work, 
and wants sommit to do, might'nt I get a bit o' bread by hawking of 
dry pocket-hanherchers , at the theaturs, for the 'commodation o* them 
as purspires over freely } — I would'nt charge no more nor a shilling a 
piece, and I'd take 'em back for four-pence, an they ban't used by 
snuffy people. •;

There was another fashionable and crowded assemblage here last 
night, to see Der Freischutz, and Love's Dream. The former piece 
has been much improved in many respects since the first night, and 
would give perfect satisfaction, were the concluding scene altered a 
little. It is destructive of all past interest, to behold in this scene 
the Dasmon walk in amongst a number of people, and bear off one oi 
them amidst flames and other devilish horrors, whilst the remaining 
group look on with indifference, and instantly proceed, on the iden- 
tical ground that had gaped and swallowed up their comrade, to sing 
and be merry, and make a match at matrimony. Surely it would 
have been better for those whom the Devil had left untouched, to fly, 
and let the scene close over the roasting of the wicked Caspar. Af- 
terwards they might have been congregated in a pleasanter spot, and 
have sang and danced, and made the lovers happy. However, Dor 
Freischutz has the merit of being a very singular production, and 
the music in general is uncommonly fine. Mr. Braham, Miss Noel, 
Miss Povey, and Mr. H. Phillips, sang with excellent effect, and 
obtained great applause. The Overture, as usual, was much ad- 
mired. — The Orchestra is very ably conducted. 

In Love's Dream, the cleverest of all the clever Miss Kelly's, 
acted with infinite , humor and dexterity, and with Mr. Wrench ia 
the same piece, often received loud applause. Mr. W. Chapman aUo 
gave great satisfaction. 

There was an excellent house here last night. The first piece was 
Mrs. Smith, *hich amused considerably : then tame The Heir at 
Law, which was admirably acted. Mr. Lyston's old Chandltr is a 
fine comic hit, and Mr. Harley's Doctor Pangloss, has all the eccen- 
tricity of manner recessary for this farcical sketch. These two gen- 
tlemen kept the audience in high mirth. Mrs. Windsor's Lady Du- 
lerly was ;not badly done. Dick Dowlas, by Mr. Vising, was well 
acted. That rising performer, Mr. W. West, played Zekiel Hotne- 
*pun with great truth of colouring, and looked the honest eountry 
lad extremely well. Miss Love appeared as the unsophisticated 
Cicely, and got through the part pretty tolerably, considering that 
she is so smart' a lady in her usual etyle of performing. The Two 
Pages of Frederick the Great was the last piece, and Mr. W. Far- 
rbk, Madame Vestris, Miss Levi, and Mrs. Gibs*, rendered^ very 
entejrttininjr,

A young man of colour, at Jamaica, has been sentenced to prisoi 
for two months, on a charge of having cried out to the actors on the 
stage of the theatre, during the performance, " Play the downfall of 
Jamaica!" — British Press. 

The attractions of Vauxoall are presented this Evening. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Mr. Editor, 

Being well aware of the liberality of your valuable 
Observer, I take the liberty of stating the following circumstance. 

A friend of mine, (a youth seventeen years of age) having been per- 
suaded by several amateurs, that he possesses abilities for the his- 
trionic art, which (if cultivated) might enable him to become an or- 
nament to the Stage ; is desirous to know what line of conduct he 
should pursue for that purpose ; therefore, if you, or (through your 
inserting this) any of your readers, could inform him, he, and my- 
self, would ever feel grateful for your kindness. 

I am, Sir, 
A CONSTANT READER. 

The Editor thinks the young gentleman should make application to 
Mr. T. Dibden, who instructs for the Stage. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 
Sir, 

Seeing an answer to my letter published by you yesterday; I 
cannot help replying to it ; I know not who the writer is, but he has 
answered my letter very confidently. -I do say, Sir, that when new 
pei formers make their appearance, they have a right to send their 
friends. As to it being a matter of courtesy, I well know, or the lady 
to whom I allude would have sent some friends, but she could not as 
she was only allowed two Orders. As to the successful career of 
Der Freischutz at one of our summer theatres, that can have nothing 
to do with my letter, as the person to whom I allude, made her first 
appearance before it was announced, and the pit of the Theatre was 
not half full ; and when I heard she was only allowed a certain num- 
ber of orders, I sent several persons to the house myself. 

I am, Sir, 
A LOVER OF JUSTICE.

No. 833 Saturday, July 31, 1824. Price Id. 

Nothing new occurred in the performance of Der Freischutz lust 
night ; but it attracted as much as before. JYIiss Kelly and Mr. 
Wrench were extremely amusing in Gretna Green. Mr. Pearjman 
and Miss Povev sang very pleasingly. — We think Mr. Peakman im- 
proved by his recent trip. 

The performances of last night went off with excellent effect, and 
gave much delight to a numerous audience. In -Sweethearts and IVives, 
which was the second piece, Bladamc Vestkis was encored in her 
song of " Why arc you wandering here I pray" and Mr. Liston in 
his Lamentation Song. The new Comedy of Married and Single 
was the last piece, in which an apology was made by Mr. Cooper, for 
Mrs. T. Hill, who was indisposed, and Miss Wo'id undertook the 
part, and got through it very well.--The new Comic Opera forth- 
coming, is anxiously looked for by the regular play-goers. In part of 
our number, yesterday, we spoke of Mr. West, instead of Mr. Huckel. 

A very astonishing musical phenomenon, in the form of a female 
child, only three years and eight months old, is now performing on 
the harp at Liverpool. Her skill is so extraordinary, that many of 
the audience are affected even to tears. No name is given — they call 
her the In/ant Lyre. 

We are happy to hear that the subscription for poor Mis. P>la\d 
is encreasing. Persons of all ranks have come forward on this occa- 
sion. An addition, however, to what has been contributed, is still 
required, to place her in a proper state of comfort. 

Dublin Theatre — July 28.— " The public are respectfully in- 
formed, that Mr. Kean is engaged at this Theatre for a limited num- 
ber of nights, and will make his first appearance on Monday next, 
in the tragedy of King Richard the Third." — Bliss M. Tree is only 
to perform here for a few nights longer. She has pleased in an emi- 
nent degree, because she possesses so much sweetness of manner, and 
has so delightful a voice. — We shall greatly regret her departure.

Birmingham Theatre. — July 26. — Our townsman, Jones, takes 
his Benefit to-night, and his acknowledged talents, aided by a nu- 
merous and respectable connexion here, will doubtless ensure him a 
good house*. .The evening's entertainments will derive very consider- 
able additional attraction by the appearance of that excellent comic 
actress, Mrs. Davison, aftes a long absence from our boards. 

July 29 — On this evening, Mr. Warde, who daily rises in estima- 
tion with the public, performs his admired character of Rob Roy.-~~ 
Mr. Elliston is to appear to-morrow in bis popular character of 
Ranger, in The Suspicious Husband, with him Mr. Blanchard and 
Mrs. Davison also appear. 

The first of Mr. Philipp's Lectures were delivered yesterday at the 
Argyll Rooms. His instructions arc original ; he exemplifies them 
by instances and illustrations ; and those who cultivate the vocal art, 
would do well to treasure up bis precepts. — It is with the utmost 
pleasure we find Mr. Philipps intends to give a second Lecture. 



To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

My dear Observer, 

There are two or three things in the performance of 
this Der Freischutz, at the linglish Opera-House, which should be 
altered. In the first place, the stage effect would not be at all di- 
minished if lamps were placed at the back of the boxes : at present 
they are so dark that you cannot discover the features of your next 
neighbour — many a pretty face, therefore goes without its just tribute 
of admiration. Mr. Arnold has contrived to draw together some 
very genteel audiences, and he must know that a great part go as 
much to be seen as to see. The house looks now just as it did when 
Mr. Bartley gave bis Astronomical Lectures. The music of this 
piece is certainly very fine, but the translation appears to me to be 
too literal. There is little or no interest in the lovers, or the comic 
characters, but the originality and spirit-stirring wildness of the story 
are sufficient to render it attractive. Mr. Bennett is a passable melo- 
dramatic actor, but he has an unfortunate dragging delivery, which 
is very tedious. Could not the casting of the balls be shortened a 
little ? — I really was quite tired of seeing this gentleman making faces 
over his cauldron. There are some other matters capable of being 
mended, but the last scene is the most defective part of the piece, 
but as you have mentioned this before, however, I need not dwell 
upon it. There is altogether a considerable deal of the extraordinary 
about Der Freischutz ; and it is no wonder it is so much run after. 
Your's, JOHN BROWN.

/>/?« Freischutz was attended by another numerous and genteel 
audience on Saturday night. The- Music, and the scene of the Cast- 
ing of the Balls, appear to be the grand attractions of the piece. — 
Mr. Bra HAM was encored in the song, " JVow, good night," as was 
the Chorus of Huntsmeu in " fVhat equals on earth the delight of 
the huntsman." 

Free and Easy followed, and was well acted by Mr. Wrench, Mr. 
Bartley, Mr. Kayner, Mr. Chapman, and Miss Kelly. 



For the first time, this season, and, we believe, for many years, 
the dull and heavy Comedy of Such Things Are, was performed at 
this Theatre on Saturday night ; we (\o not think the revival does any 
credit to the taste or judgment of the Manager. On its first repre- 
sentation it was exceedingly popular, but solely because the celebrated 
Howard was then the subject of universal admiration, and his name 
the theme of universal praise. To compliment this excellent man (who 
by the bye, is described by the authoress as hateing all compliments) 
Mrs. Inchbald produced her Comedy, and however deserving of the 
success that followed, this feeling might have been, it was more than 
a rccompence for the talent employed upon it. The production is as 
insipid as it could well be, and there is nothing of humor, bustle, or 
character, to atone for its decided want of interest and dramatic in- 
cident. We cannot but condemn in the most unqualified manner the 
revival of this piece, while so many of its betters are forgotten by 
those, who alone possess the power of preserving from oblivion the 
works of our best dramatists. Mr. W. Farren performed with ad- 
mirable effect the part of Sir Luke Tremor, but it must have been 
wretched, indeed, if he had not been able to render it amusing. Mi. 
Liston was not " At Home" in the character of Ttoineell, and his 
gift of rich humor was lost. Mr. Johnson acted My Lord Flint, 
but did nothing more. Mr. Vining, who is daily improving, was ex- 
cellent as Elvirus ; and Mrs. Glover and Mrs. Gibbs were both ad- 
mirable as Arabella and Lady Tremor. We must not omit our tri- 
bute of praise to the acting of Mr. Cooper, who sustained the part 
of Mr. Haswell in as perfect a style as we ever recollect. His con*

ception of, the character was exquisite, and his performance equally 
so. The Farce of The Padlock followed: Miss Paton and Miss 
Love sang very sweetly, and they were well supported by Mr. W, 
West and Mr. Williams. 

Davis's Amphitheatre, and Sadler's Wells, it will be seen, have a 
great variety of novel amusements this evening. 

The entertainments and attractions generally at Vauxhall have 
brought to it this season the most unexampled patronage. It is now 
in the very zenith of its success, and the continued fine weather in- 
duces crowds of the beauty, rank, and fashion of London, to assemble 
as a matter of preference and delight, after the anxiety and toil of 
the busy day. 

Delicate %Affair. — If report is to be credited, a first-rate vocalist 
will soon appear before the public in a new and not very agreeable 
character. It is said that he lias felt for some time the influence of 
the gentle passion in a way unfavorable to his repose, and the feeling 
was equally ardent on the part of the lady, (the wife of a wealthy 
commoner) which has led to so unfortunate a result. 

Mr. Sinclair sailed from Dublin at the close of the last week, to ful- 
fil an engagement in Edinburgh, where he will be joined in a few days 
by Miss Tree. — British Press. 

At the Cheltenham Races, Mr. and Mrs. Yates were surrounded by 
a gang of sharpers, who succeeded in robbing Mrs. Yates of her re-

This theatre was very full last night, and, indeed we may say that 
it is now almost equally well attended every evening. The Comedy of 
The Young Quaker was the first piece, and was acted in the most 
eutertaining manner. Mr. W. Farren's Chronicle was admirable — • 
it is, however, no libel on his professional character to say he can only 
act in one description of parts with eminent success. Mr. Viking 
performed Young Sadboy with much pleasantry, and was duly ap- 
plauded, as was Mr. Harley, in Spatterdash, which is one of his 
excellent hits-off — full of life and humor. Mr. Liston was thrown 
away upon Clod. The Dinah Primrose of Miss Chester is delight- 
ful. Mrs. Gibbs, in Pink, was quite at home ; and the other cha- 
racters were in general well supported. Killing no Murder, and the 
Two Pages of Frederick the Great, closed the entertainments iu ex- 
cellent st vie. 



Another crowded house to see Der Freischutz last night. The 
music, and the horrors of the Wolfs Glen, are the general theme of 
conversation. The Germans feel highly flattered at the success of 
their countryman's Opera ; and nightly there are to be discovered in 
the Theatre many of those persons, who give vent to their feelings 
and sentimonts in those agreeable tones which Swift compared to the 
neighing of a horse. 

Military Tactics, and A Dun a Day, followed the Opera, and 
were very pleasantly acted. 

On Thursday next, will be produced a new Farce, under the title 
of (' The Reign of Twelve Hours!" 

French Theatres. — A letter from Paris, dated Saturday, says — 
'•This evening, the first representation of It' Ecole du Scandle, as li- 
terally translated from Sheridan's admirable comedy, will be given at 
the Theatre Versailles. — The boxes are all taken. No alteration has 
been made in the plot, characters, or scenery of the play. A new 
piece called L' Ecolier d' Oxford, was brought out at the Odeoa the 
other evening. There is nothing very meritorious in this piece, which 
was only tolerably received."

Miss Tree and Mr. Sinclair are to appear here, we believe, in about 
a week. They were expected to have immediately followed the close 
of Miss Stephens' and Mr. Horn's engagement ; but Miss Tree was 
detained by the prolongation of Covent Garden season.— Edinburgh 
Paper. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 
My Dear Observer, 

I've a bit of a crow to pluck with My Lord Ogleby, alias 
Mr. W. Fauuen. I perceive " he does a bit of literary for *' The London," 
and is " nothing if not critical. " He has adventured sorae remarks upon 
Shakspeare's most beautiful creations, Hamlet, Ophelia, the famous soliloquy 
<k To be, or not lobe," &c. I shall confine ^iy self at present to his first lucu- 
bration " on the Madness of Hamlet." The purport of this is to prove, that 
Shakspeare intended to exhibit Hamlet as labouring under a species of in- 
anity, ycleped melancholia attonita. He proves this upon the authority of Dr. 
Mason Good, whose four goodly octavos, Mr. Fakren has been rummaging 
for the purpose. " Hear 'till him," as Sir VValtjeh would say: — " Having 
collected the evidence of Hamlet's madness/ afforded by his discourse and con- 
duct in the Play, it remains to be shewn by medical testimony, that he ought to 
be pronounced insane." Would not any body suppose that my Lord was sit- 
ting upon a commission to enquire into the state of the Lord Hamlet's intel- 
lectuals, and summing up the evidence to the jury ? He quotes from Dr. Good 
a description of the aforesaid malady, of which •' a love of solitude, gloom, 
fear, suspicion, and taciturnity, are the ordinary signs." Dr. Good says, 
*' there is a desire of doing well, but the will is wayward and unsteady, and 
produces an inability of firmly pursuing any laudable exertion or purpose," 
and then, my Lord adds, " grief, (and particularly the loss of friends) or long 
exposure to the direct rays of the sun, have frequently produced it." The 
sequiter of this is, that Hamlet must have gone out into the garden with his 
hat off, and got his knowledge-box ove.-heated ! — this in Denmark too ! — My 
Lord speaks : — " the Ring says, (speaking to Hamlet) " How is it that the 
clouds still hang on you ?" Hamlet — -'Not so, my lord, Vmtoo much V the 
sun." That is, ** the King had asked Hamlet why the clouds were still hang* 
ing on him, and the Prince replies: — " So far from my being clouded, or in a 
humid atmosphere, I am too much in the sun — I'm actually brain-scorch- 
ed !! !*.'■ Now is not this admirable fooling? — Who would suspect that my 
Lord Ogleby knew no more about Shakspeare than this ? Can he he such a flat 
as to suppose that the King really thought Hamlet was in nub ib us 1 Could 
none of Messrs. Taylor and Hessey's scribes tell him that there are such things 
as figures of sp-ech, and that his Majesty so far from suspecting his princely 
nephew of being in a fog, intended'to insinuate that the clouds of grief were 
hanging upon him, to which the Prin> e replies — '.' Not so, I am too much in 
the glare and bastle of your immoral court." I shall return to this subject by 
and bye ; at present I must content myself with observing, that Mr. Farren 
completely misunderstands the author he attempts to criticise. Shakspeare 
never intended to exhibit a stark madman on the stage — the idea is absurd. — ■ 
He knew too well that bodily disease is not a subject for representation. The 
beautiful and almost faultless character in question, is a pure personification 
of intellect. The poet has here shown a mind of vivid sensibility, clouded 
by grief, and feelings painfully acute, stung and goaded on to acts at variance 
with their nature from the unfortunate circumstances in which he is placed, and 
the vices by which he is surrounded. It may be very true that his acts are not 
always consistent with sound reason ; but this does not prove that he is mad, 
nor that the character is unnatural. If that was the case, no character in the 
whole range of the poet's works could be pronounced of sound mind. Really, 
"Mr. Farren, you must not look to Dr. Good for a good commentary upon 
•Shakspeare. Your's, most critically, JOHN BROWN.

<£ngii£l) <0pera^ouae. 

Really, we are at a loss to vary our account of proceedings at tin's 
Theatre. Der Freisohutz holds such determined possession of the 
boards, that our Paper must suffer for it. Well, with all our heart — 
we are not sorry for this endurance, if our readers are not : but there 
is some reason to dread the falling off of variety, which is the charm 
that leads us sane mortals through life without coming under the in*> 
fluence of the Blue Devils. Talking of Devils, the gentleman of this 
species, who horrifies us in this piece by the tremendous rolling of hia 
fiery eyes, and who raises up such an awful corps of diabolicals, is 
actually a Devil of the very first consequence. He appears to have 
congregated about him as much of the dismal and terrific, as his emi- 
nent station in the lower regions could render necessary to his demon- 
iacal dignity. What between spirits in shadowy forms, of ominous 
owls, and deadly bats, of croaking ravens, of monsters nameless as 
shapeless, and bloody rivers, and lightnings glaring over the sullen 
scene, and roaring winds, and rattling thunder, his Dcemonship is 
presented to us under circumstances of a most inviting nature. After 
the consideration of sneb sublime objects, can it be expected we should 
trouble ourselves or our readers, with any mention of those harmonious 
creatures, Braham, Povey, Noel, &c. &c. 

I^ap^marftet €f)eatre* 

Last night, Mr. W. Farren toddled about very effectively as Beau 
Shatterly. We are glad to find that a new Operatic Comedy is an- 
nounced for Saturday, for to say truth, Married and Single is made of 
perishable stuff. While upon this subject, we would beg leave to ask 
why two pieces under this title are allowed to issue from the press at 
the same time? Mr. Moncrieff, we understand, made a translation 
of the original French piece for some minor house, which, of comse, 
he was at liberty to do, but surely he has no business to adopt Mr,. 
Poole's title-page : — we must say, it looks a little like deception. 
Mr. Miller should lose no time in bringing out the real Simon Pure. 

After Married and Single, Mr. Cooper came forward with a very 
long face, and made a speech of which the following is a verbatim et 
literatim report : — " Ladies and Gentlemen, I appear before you now — 
it is a very unpleasant circumstance to me — the Managers have desired 
me to state— (feeling for something in hte pocket) — they received 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



this medical certificate— (producing it) — from a — Mr. Phillips— -of — 
Old Cavendish Street — (spelling the letter) — stating that Miss Ches- 
• ter is so extremely ill she cannot appear to-night in Sweethearts and 
Wives. Under these circumstances., Mrs. T. Hill, who I believe has 
played the part twice or thrice this season, has undertaken to play the 
part, but she is ill too ! Miss Wood, therefore, at a very short no- 
tice, has consented to appear as Eugenia. — (a pause) Will you ac- 
cept her as a substitute ?" A little applause and some hisses followed 
this oration, but the ayes had if, and Miss Wood appeared ac- 
cordingly, and acted throughout with considerable feeling. 

Rossini. — A French Paper has the following — " The Prince of 
Saxe-Cobourg, son-in-law to the King of England, has shewn a re- 
markable instance of generosity towards Rossini. The custom with 
this celebrated Italian composer, is, never to go to any musical 
soirees for less than 50 guineas. Ho three times presided over Con- 
certs for the Prince, for which his Highness sent him 500 guineas and 
a diamond pin." 

Now, this we conceive is nothing more nor less than a puff of 
Signor Rossini's, on his return to the French capital. If we could 
bring ourselves to believe that a Prince, who has hitherto been popular 
on account of his own personal conduct, as well as the endearing re- 
eo^ection of his lamented Princess, could so far forget the liberality 
of the founders of his fortune, as thus to lavish on a conceited fo- 
reigner, for three nights superintendanee of a band of musicians, a 
sum that would keep in comfort ten British families for an entire year, 
we could hardly restrain the honest indignation of our feelings, from, 
expressing the contempt every Englishman of sense must join with us 
in entertaining, at such a wanton waste of British money on a worth- 
less object. 

The Duke of Wellington honoured Davis's Amphitheatre with his 
presence on Monday night. His Grace paid marked attention to the 
representation of The Battle of Waterloo, and was much gratified 
with the inimitable horsemanship of Mons. Dncrow. 

Yesterday a Meeting of the new Renters of Drury-lane Theatre 
was held in the Saloon, for the purpose of declaring a dividend upon 
the debentures for the last acting season. Sir Thomas Turton was 
called to the Chair. We are happy to state that the Trustees have 
been enabled to increase the dividend from £12 10s. to £15 10s.

The Comic Piece of Matrimony commenced the performances at 
this pleasant little Theatre last evening. Mrs. Chatterley played 
the part of Clara admirably, as did Mr. Vining that of Delavat. — 
Mr. Lee acted O'Cloggerty with considerable humor. — There was 
much applause throughout. The Beggar's Opera afforded a high 
treat to the audience, from the admirable manner in which it is sung 
and acted at this house. Miss Paton, as Polly, delighted as usual 
by the brilliant style in which she executed the songs of her part ; she 
was rapturously encored in " Cease your funning" which was a fine 
display of harmony and science. Madame Vestris appeared to la- 
bour under the effect of indisposition, but notwithstanding sang and 
acted the part of Marhealh, with admirable spirit and effect through- 
out. — She was encored in " How happy could I be with either'* Mrs. 
C. Jones, as Miss Lucy, looked and acted the part excellently. The 
characters of Peachum and Lockit were well played by Messrs. Far- 
ren and Williams : — the quarrel-scene between these worthies was 
highly humorous and effective. The Comedy of the Young Quaker 
concluded the evening's entertainments, in which Messrs. Liston', 
Farren, and Harley appeared, and gave infinite amusement by 
their excellent acting in the parts of Clod, Chronicle, and Spatter- 
dash. The Comedy was much applauded. — The house was crowded. 

On Monday next, will be produced a new Comic Opera, under the 
title of " The Alcade ; or, the Secrets of Office." 



Last night after Der Freischutx, which went off with much eclat, 
The Padlock was enacted, with the novelty of Mr. Sloman, as Mungo. 
This gentleman is an old minor — a prodigiocs favorite with the gal- 
leries of Sadler's Wells and the Cobourg. To speak a word of truth, 
we know no actor escape from these houses undefiled. They arc more 
than country theatres, in which performers only learn to rant and 
make faces, " making the night hideous ; but at these pestilent mi- 
nors, their tastes are debauched, and their powers perverted, till they 
are incapable of being applied to any good or useful objects. Their 
faces are familiar as the man in the yellow hat at Exeter-'Change, or 
the " nigger," at the Obelisk: — their persons are " common hackuied

in the eyes of men," and associated with all sorts of disagreeable re~ 
collections — nielo-dramas, ' full of sound and fury, signifying nothing/ 
real water — glass-'euriains — broad-sword combats — blood, fury, and 
blue fire ! Under all the disadvantages which running the gauntlet of 
those houses for ten years, must impose upon him, Mr. Sloman ap- 
pears here. — It is but fair to say that he acquitted himself better than 
could have been expected. He hns humor, certainly, but it is too 
much in the style of Mr. W. Chapman — ' damn'd low," as My Lord 
Duke says. It is probable, however, that Mr. Sloman will see the 
necessity of chastening his style, but at present it is out of its me- 
ridian. Miss Povey warbled awav in Leonora with considerable effect, 
but she draws out her notes to an excess at times — it is like extract- 
ing a Champaigne cork, or a very long tooth. All the other cha- 
racters were respectably supported. Amongst the fashionables in the 
boxes, we discerned Ladies Forbes, Oai michaei, Ellenborough, Mont- 
ford, the Marchioness of Londonderry, the Marquis of Hertford, 
(second time) Lord Mount Edgecombe, Lord Downe, Sir George 
Talbot, Sir Fitzroy Maciean, and Mr. Goldsmid. — The house was 
crowded. 

It will be seen by our play-bill that Miss Kelly appears to-night, 
in a new Farce, together with Messrs. Pearman, Bartley, and W. 
Chapman ; so we must expect humor and harmony. 

Vauxhall. — To-morrow evening, there will bo a Splendid Gala 
Fete, under the especial Patronage of His Majesty. 

On Friday evening last, while a number of musical gentlemen were 
engaged in rehearsing a part of the Creation at the Concert Room, 
Norwich, on coming to a fine close with the words ' Let there be light 
and there was light" — and the gas flame just at that moment sudden- 
ly went out, and left the whole band in perfect darkness. 

Mr. Thompson, (of Drury Lane Theatre) sets off to-day to re-open 
the English Theatre at Boulogne. 

Mr. Beazley, the architect and dramatist, has lately been married 
to a lovely young lady with £80,000 ! 

A Constant Reader enquires who the gentleman was that supplied the 
place of Mr. J. Reeve, in the Imitations given at Covent Garden Theatre, on 
the 20th ultimo. — We believe it was a Mr. Rede, who got much applause.

Tub Devil's own Drama ! for by such a title must we call Der

houses has this e.vtiaoidinary piece attracted, and in the. do^-dnys 
top — (t JScerif dog lias his day" If we apply the adage to the Mana- 
gers of the English Opera-tJouso, we must say they arc ' lucky dog* 
— speaking of dogs — the bones do not go. 

" Der Freischct;: was followed by a new Musical Entei tainment, pro- 
duced for the first time, under the title of the lleign of Twelve 
Hoars. This piece met a favorable reception, and was admirably 
acted, particularly by Mr. Hartley and Miss Kellv. We will not 
>ay that it possesses a powerful interest, or a great abundance of hu- 
mor, but it is light, and passes on pleasantly to a i at her too obvious 
a conclusion. — The following is a description of the story; — 

The Caliph has been induced, by the representations of bad ad- 
visers, to banish a virtuous vizier, who took with him a daughter, 
the lovely and witty • Vourma. In time the Caliph discovered his er- 
lor, but not before the death of the banished Vizier, whose daughter, 
however, he invited to his court, and lavished on her such attentions 
as excited the jealousy of his son, Prince Zeangcr, who, without 
having seen JVourma, conceived such a rooted hatred of her, as caused 
the Caliph to imprison him to secure the safety of the young favorite. 
JVourma, however, entertaius a generous aifection for the Prince, and 
his charmed him, incojr, by her musical talents whilst confined in hi> 
dungeon. A Princess Zoraide, at this period, has been proposed as 
a match for Zeanger, which the Caliph desires as a bond of peace 
between him and a neighbouring state, but I he unknown veiled mu- 
sician has interested his feelings too much to allow him to assent, to 
his father's wishes — the consequence i>, the Prince is returned to more 
vigorous imprisonment. JSourma, determined to gain the aifections of 
the Prince, and reconcile the father and son, induces the Caliph, a a 
if it were for a joke, to invest her with the sovereign power ior the 
space of twelve hours. In the capacity of Queen she plays with the 
loyal feeling of the abdicated Monarch : and having exchanged cha- 
racters with the Princess for a trial of her personal power over the 
Prince, she has him set at liberty — wins his heart as Zoraide — avows 
lieiself — and delights Zeangcr with proving that it is in woman's

power to conquer by Iter charms, the heart, and also to destroy the 
prejudices of man. She is united to Zcaiiger, and (lie Caliph and 
his son embrace, thus happily concluding A Reign of Twelve Hours. 
The Music by Mr. Herbert, if not very original, was pleasing. — 
Mr. Pearman had an encore. — The house was crowded at an early 
hour.

After Sylvester Daggenvood, The Marriage of Figaro was per- 
formed. Miss Paton represented Susanna. In the first act it will 
be remembered that Susanna runs after the Page to take from him 
the ribbon he has snatched. In doing this Miss Paton's foot was un- 
fortunately caught in her dress, and she fell headlong with great vio- 
lence on the stage. She appeared unable to rise, and Mr. Huckel 
and Mrs. Chatterley fl>vw to her assistance, and she was carried off. 
After some time had elapsed, Mr. Vim no appeared, and stated thar. 
Miss Paton, although not seriously injured, was greatly agitated ; 
but she would soon return to go on with her part. She, accordingly, 
came on again in about half an hour evidently considerably disturbed 
by the accident. Her fine voice, however, nothing of this kind could 
overcome, and she sang with fine effect, and obtained the greatest 
applause. 

On Monday, (1st time) The Alcade ; or, The Secrets of Office. 

On Sunday last Mr. Price, the American manager, accompanied by 
Miss L. Kelly, and the other performeis whom he had engaged, em- 
barked at Liverpool on board the packet-ship Pacific, and sailed for 
New York. — British Press. 

Mr. Kean appeared at Dublin on Monday night, for the first time 
this season, in his favourite character of Richard the Third. On his 
entrance he was greeted with ?ong, loud, and evidently very hearty 
applause. This he acknowledged with mute, yet eloquent gratitude. 
In the scene with Lady Anne, a rather singular circumstance occurred 
in that particular part where Richard exclaims, " Oh ! divine per- 
fection of a woman :*' — A lady in the pit, convinced, no doubt, that 
there was nothing divine or perfect in woman at all (which, by-the- 
bye, we take leave to deny), ejaculated her surprise in so very audible 
a tone as to be heard throughout the house. This caused general 
laughter, in which the lady joined, and momentarily stopped the per- 
formance — but attention was soon restored by the inimitable exhibition 
of that encroaching humility by which Richard works himself, not 
only into the good graces of Lady Jlnne, but also into personal ex- 
altation. — Dublin Paper.

In Lover's Quarrels, Mrs. \V. Clifford appeared as Leonora. — 
She is a lady who well understands the business of flic Stage ; and 
must be useful in many parts. The other characters of this piece 
were pleasantly sustained. Sweethearts and JFives followed, in which 
Mrs. Chatterley supported the character of Eugenia, and Madame 
Vestris played Laura. Mr. Liston, as Billy, was as humorous as 
ever. Two Strings to your Dow concluded the entertainments of the 
evening very agrueably. 

€ng!i£!j <0pcra4[)ou£fo 

Another numerous audience had their hair put on end at the devil- 
ries of the arch fiend, Zamiel, in the Opera of Dcr Freischutz. — 
The Casting of the Balls is now managed with as much skill as the 
finest genius in the infernal regions could present — it is a scene that, 
including all which strikes the eye and car, more powerfully assaults 
the imagination than any thing we ever beheld. The ladies, however, 
do not very much like to be put in the dark, and when the house is 
re-lighted many a fair face betrays some remaining symptoms of alarm 
at the terrific objects that have been presented. 

The new Musical Farce of The Reign of Twelve Hours was again 
favorably received ; but we cannot say that it has auy other merit 
than that of admitting Miss Kelly to shew her comic talents. Mr. 
Hartley delivers his wise speeches with very good effect ; and Mr. 
W. Chapman ably sustained the Courtier, who is " all things to all 
men," and understates the art of booing as well as Sir Pertinaoc 
JMacsycophant himself. The best scene in this piece is that where 
the Monarch out-of-work, feels the want of power as a serious griev- 
ance, and where the fair and amiable JVonrma amuses herself with 
his chagrin. This Farce is only calculated to assist in forming the 
required variety of entertainments of a season, and so far it is re- 
ceived with much good humor. 

Mr. Poole, the author of the Comedy of Married and Single, now 
in a course of successful performance at the. Haymarket Theatre, ha* 
published that piece, with a preface, in which he complains loudly 
against Mr. Elliston for some conduct relative to it. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



In consequence of the unfavorable state of the weather, Vauxhall. 
Was not so well attended last night ; but on Monday the grand Gala 
will be repeated. — Davis's Amphitheatre and Sadler's Wells have 
been attended by fashionable audiences this week. 

It Was a mistake of our informant the other day, who stated that 
Mr. Thompson- was about to proceed to Boulogne ; that gentleman 
having gone to Swansea on a professional trip. 

It is confidently reported, in the theatrical world, that a celebrated 
vocalist is married to a wealthy Baronet, and that this is the last 
season she will appear on any Stage. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 
Mr. Observer, 

My Worthy Sir, 

* 

As I am certain you are a man of refinement and delicacy, 
from the pure and rational style in which your highly useful Paper is 
written, I beg to address you on a subject of the greatest importance 
to societv, particularly to the amiable and respectable part of the 
public, who patronise the drama ; and which, I am sure, requires but 
the aid of your powerful pen to call the attention of Managers to it, 
and rouse them to a proper sense of their duty, and the respect which 
they owe the public, for the suppression of a disgraceful nuisance 
which their theatres nightly present, in the presence of those herds 
of rude and disgusting prostitutes who infest the boxes, and insult 
and annoy, by their foul language and manners, every respectable 
person who may chance to come in contact with them. A circumstance 
of this kind happened to a friend of mine the other evening at the 
Lyceum, who took his wife to see the new Opera, when the pit being 
full, they went to the upper-boxes, where, as soon as the half-price 
door, that sluice-gate of filth, was opened, they were immediately 
surrounded and disgusted by the?e wretched women, who, thinking 
proper to raise a quarrel with one another, upon some alledged affront 
given by these worthies to each other, their language assumed such a 
tone of clamour and indecency, that not a word of the performance 
could be heard : but this was not the worst part of their conduct, for 
on being requested to be a little silent, they returned such a volley of 
foul abuse that they were compelled to quit the house. Now, Sir, as 
I am sure you will feel with me the enormity of this evil towards the 
public, and consequent injary to the proprietors, I doubt not your en- 
deavours to impress it upon Mr. Arnold, who, I am persuaded, need 
only be informed of the fact to cause it to be promptly remedied. 

I am, my worthy Sir, vour's,

Twelve Precisely has so often afforded Mrs.CiiATTERLEY an oppor- 
tunity of displaying a very versatile talent, that wc need not dwell 
upon her success as Miss Wildlove, on Saturday night : wc would 
rather proceed to Killing no Murder, which was very humorously 
acted. Mr. Harley, as Buskin, was entertaining in the highest de- 
gree Wc remember Mathews in this character, and we do not con- 
ceive it has lost a jot of its original comicality in the hands of Har- 
ley. No better proof can be given of Mr. H.'s effective fan, than 
the continued laughter and applause that marked his appearances on 
the stage in the various assumed characters. Mr. Liston, as Mr. 
Jpollo, was a divine creature, whose very look commanded not only 
the Earthly Beings of the pit, and the Lordly Beings of the Boxes, 
to smile, but awed the very Celestials themselves into a downright 
horse-laugh ; a species of worship most acceptable to the radiant. 
Apollo. The Manager had resolved to make this said Saturday night 
a very prototype of what should be the business of a well-regulated 
man's life, namely, to improve as time advauccs. Thus, we had, as 
a finish, Love in a Village, with Miss Paton, as Rosetta. She sang 
with most delightful effect, introducing " The Banks of Man Watery 
and " The Gentle Lark ."—la the last she had an enthusiastic encore. 
Whilst speaking of this young lady, we beg here to reply to an inti- 
mation made to us, viz. that we were over-partial to her as a public 
performer. In the first place, wc deny that it is reasonably in our 
power to exceed in our admiration of the vocal talents and acquire- 
ments of Miss Paton ; and in the next place, we would repel the in- 
sinuation that anv undue cause could make her our peculiar favorite ; 
for, on the contrary, if wo were influenced by unworthy motives for 
unfriendly feelings towards her, we might have found a stimulous for 
them in the circumstance of her having ceased lately to be a subscriber 
to this Paper, without any just offence being given on our part. We 
may take this opportunity to observe, that so far from our being tri- 
butary friends of any performer, we have rejected at once many va- 
luable offers for our good opinion ; and we challenge every green-room 
in the kingdom to produce a solitary instance of such an opinion of 
ours fieing purchased, or remunerated. 

Mrs. Garrick represented Lucinda with her usual ability. Mr. 
W. Farren acted Justice Woodcock, " for the fust time," but aU 







the theatrical observer. 



■though he confers a touch of humor on the part, he committed a great 
error in converting the hale and -hearty .country gentleman of sixty-five 
into an infirm old man of seventy or eighty. He totters in his step, 
and stoops with the apparent weight of years, instead of shewing 
the vigour which Mr. MunI>ex and Mr. Fawcett used correctly to 
assume. — Mr. Farrbn was encored in the song. Mr. Melrose, as 
Young Meadows, sang with much taste. Mr. W. West and Mrs. C. 
Jones played Hodge and Madge very well. Hawthorn was very fairly 
done hy Mr. Huckel.- — There was a good house. 

A new Opera, called ". The Alcaid ; or, the Secrets of Office/' will 
he produced to-morrow. 



When we mention that Der Freiseh>it~, and The Reign of Twelve 
Hours, were performed on Saturday night to a very numerous au- 
dience, it is really as much as we can say ; our stock of observations 
on these pieces being exhausted. 

Vauxiiall — This evening* a splendid Gala will be given. 

The John Bull of yesterday, has the following : — " We have no 
room for the long Preface to ft Married and Single," nor in these 
days are the squabbles of authors and managers the least interesting 
to the world. We remember Mr. Elliston, when he horsewhipped Mr, 
Rod well, the box-keeper, (who, by the way, was attended on the oc- 
casion by his friend the celebrated Captain O'Callaghan,) wrote a 
brief and very angry / note, in which lie declared himself unmoved 
* by a puddle in a storm' — how he may feel towards a " Pool in 
a passion," we cannot take upon ourselves to anticipate."

tre, to a comparatively thin house. — British Press. 

A new vaudeville, or ballet, entitled La Jalousie Anglaise, is get- 
ting up at the Theatre des Varieties, and another at the Theatre des

These caricatures of English manners, like Les Jlnglaises pour rire, 
are sure to attract full houses ; and the families of John Bull will, no 
doubt, shew how much they arc amused by being loudest in the laugh 
at the singularities of their countrymen. — // rit Men qui rit le dernier.

The full signification of those two attractive words, " Der Frci- 
schutz," (a Correspondent says) can only be explained by a periphra- 
sis, and signify " a hunter who shoots with a charmed bullet, which 
never misses the right mark" 

This explanation is useful, and it may be illustrated not only by Mr. 
Bennett's prowess, but also by Mr. Arnold's success, with his rifle, 
for he very fairly aud copiously bags the cash every time his piece is 
presented.

Last night, after Sylvester IJaggerwood, which character was very 
humorously acted by Mr. W. West, Married and Single was repre- 
sented, and the last piece was Mr. Kenny's pleasant operatic Comedy 
of Sweethearts and Wives, in which Madame Vestris sang charm- 
ingly, and was encored in Mr. Nathan's delightful air, " TFhy ate 
you wandering." Mr. Liston, as Billy Lackaday, was highly enter- 
taining, and, as usual, was made to sing his melancholy ditty twice. 
Mrs. Chatterley represented Eugenia in the most engaging manner, 
and the whole piece'was much applauded. The new Opera to-night 
is from the pen of Mr. Kknny, and the music entirely by Mr. Nathan, 
whose science and taste are rapidly leading him to that eminent station 
amongst our musical composers, which poor Lord Byron deemed him 
worthy of. by writing expressly for him. 

The meaning of the word Alcaid, is a Judge or Governor.

Mr. Editor, 

A Correspondent stated in your Paper last Friday that 
the bones do not go, at the English Opera-House. Pray, has that

THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



THE NEW TRAGEDY OF " AGIS." 

A new Tragedy, entituled " Agis," has just beon published, written 
by a Mr. Harton, who, we understand, is a young gentleman of con- 
siderable literary promise ; indeed, judging from this first effort of 
Iiis pen, there are such strong indications of talent, that it may. rea- 
sonably be expected the progress of his mind in the branch of liter- 
ature he has now adventured upon, will terminate in a full idea of 
every requisite that judgment and taste can critically demand. We 
have read his present production with much pleasure, because it un- 
folds in nervous language an interesting series of characters connected 
with a portion of history that is familiar and delightful to every one. 
This Tragedy does not appear to have been written for the stage : — 
we will not attempt in our limited space to enter critically on the en- 
tire merits of the piece ; but to shew the reader the powers Mr. Har- 
ton possesses, we will present the following extract. 

Agis. My lord, I bring sad tidings to your ear, 
The Persians even now appear in sight, 
And pitch their tents before Thermopyle. 

Leon. Why this indeed is tidings sad enough, 
But nothing mora than what we have expected. 
Still be assur'd, good Agis, that their absence 
Excited fears, their presence has expell'd. 
We now can see our enemy — before, 
They hover'd round us like a thunder cloud, 
Whence none could tell on whom the bolt would fall. 
While thus they stand, we see them where they are, 
And this at least we for our comfort know. 
That only death shall tell us where they will be ; 
But say how numerous do their tents appear ? 

Agis. Should I pretend to enter on description. 
Each word, I fear, would almost blunt the credit, 
And only serve to rank me 'mongst the false. 
Then let your judgment measure for itself, 
When I detail but simply what I saw. 
Occasion led me to the highest cliff 
Of cloud capp'd Octa, 'neath whose hoary brow 
The moon and stars their nightly slurader take, 
And hide themselves at each approach of morn : 
From thence the eye alternate takes a view 
O'er all the Locrian and the Phocian plains, 
On one side, and Thessalian on the other. 
The last no sooner did present themselves, 
Then not as formerly the ground appear'd, 
Enrich'd with verdure and the harvest smile, 
But camps, as numerous as the pinion'd tribe, 
That sail the aether, and as countless too, 
My vision led upon a boundless sea, 
And only shew'd a resting place in clouds.

Last night a new Opera, entitled a The Alcuid ; or, the Secrets 
of Qflcc," was presented for the first time. It is written by Mr. 
Kennkv, and the Music composed by Mr. Na-Than. This piece ap- 
pears to be formed on the model of some of those foreign Operas, in 
which the business of intrigue is the leading Jtoint, and a complexity 
of plot is finally attempted to be briefly and laughable divulged, not 
to the audience, but to the characters themselves. Such a design in- 
volves this misfortune, that the audience, knowing what is to come, 
cannot feel an interest ^beyond what may aiisc from looking forward 
to the effect of the passing events on the dramatis personam. It re- 
quires great power and skill in the dramatist to supply this deficiency 
of a gradually developed plot ; and in Mr. Kcnney we have reason to 
look for these qualities in a higher degree than is displayed in the 
present Piece. However, the dialogue is not without markings of his 
talent ; and the whole being excellently performed, and supported by 
the very tasteful music of Mr. Nathan, did not fail to produce a fa- 
vorable result. We would detail the Plot circumstantially, but it is 
far too difficult a task, and would take much more space than we pos- 
sess. Yet this we can state : — that the Alcaid, or Chief Magistrate 
of a town in Spain, is considered by himself the most lynx-eyed per- 
sonage in the world, He imagines that he is able to penetrate into 
the secrets of every affair that happens within the limits of his rule ; 
but, the fact is, he is the dupe of an artful Secretary, who justly ob- 
serves, that the Alcaid can see things at a great distance, but is blind 
as to what happens under his nose. The Jllcaid thinks his wife do- 
mesticated and prudent, but she steals out at midnight to a masque- 
rade contrary to his wishes, He imagines his son Felix so devoted 
to his studies that he dreads the loss of his health, but the youth is 
only pursuing natural philosophy, that is, playing the lover. He sup- 
poses his niece Rosabel, a paragon of obedience and innocence, but 
whilst he i3 thinking of giving her an old husband, she is meeting a 
young and gay admirer. He is convinced that Pedrosa, his secretary, 
is the most honest secretary on the face of the earth, but Pedrosa 
does nothing but deceive him from beginning to end. The only person 
he forms any thing like a correct notion of, is Jabez, his servant, but 
even with respect to him he is wrong, for he think3 he is a Lothario 
in his way, whilst poor Jabex is a melancholy jealous husband. The 
Jfcaid even thinks himself wise and virtuous, but he is fooled at all 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



sides, and is detected in an intrigue, which his studious son is pursuing 
at the same time, and in the same quarter. These unseen qualities 
and pursuits of the Alcaid's family, are cither confided to, or observed 
by Pedrosa. who uses them like a wise Officer of State, to his own 
advantage, and to the advantage of the reigning family. The Music 
was generally admired ; particularly the overture, the song of " My 
gauntlet's down," by Madame Vestris, "Haste! haste I I pray" 
by Miss Pa ton, and the duet of " Oh ! happy, happy lovers," by 
those ladies, which were all enthusiastically encored. The concerted 
pieces were also finely executed. — The house overflowed at an early 
hour. — It is to be repeated every evening till further notice. 

The following is a specimen of the Songs, which are published by 
Mr. Miller, 1$q\v Bridge Street, Blackfriars, and sold in the Thea- 
tre. 

SONG — Felix— Madame Vestris. *

O'er youth's bewildering tide, 
To lands of promised bliss afar, 

My bright and beaming guide ! 

My gauntlet's down, &c, 

SONG— Jahez. 

That wedlock's divine, 

Mav be all very fine. 
When a man has his happiness handy ; 

But wedlock like mine 

Is on gruel to dine. 
Or a meaker of punch without brandy. 
Heighy ! heigho ! to my lot that it ever should fall, 

Like an addle brain dunce, 

Thus to wed all at once ; 
And no I ride-cake, no honey-moon, no nothing at all. 

As for me and my fair. 

We are much such a pair, 
As two squinting eyes, or forlorner, 

When one, we suppose, 

Is for ogling the nose, 
And one for a twist round the corner. 

Heigho ! heigho, &c. &C. 



We have only room to say, there was another numerous and genteel 
audience here last night to see Der Freischutz, and The Padlock. 

Vauxhall. — We find that the Proprietors close the Gardens this 
evening, in order, we presume, that they may give greater effect to the 
Royal Fete, to be given to-morrow, in honor of our beloved King, 
which, from report, is likely to be very splendid.

JDaimiiarhct theatre. 

After Lover's Quarrels, the new Opera of " TLjc Alcaki ; or, the 
Secrets of Office?' was performed for the second time, and having un- 
dergone some judicious curtailments, went off with superior effect. — 
Wo had no room yesterday to mention the acting, and the execution 
of the music, in a particular manner. Mr. W. Farrex, as the old 
self-sufficient Jllcahl, represents this wittol with rather too much of 
the air and manner of an infinitely older man than we should conceive 
he was intended to bo. Indeed, all Mr. Farken's old gentlemen are 
complete antiques ; lean and slippered pantaloons ; this defect he 
surely can remedy by assuming a more vigorous gait, and a firmer 
tone. Mr. Listox in the character of the busy Secretary Pedrosa, 
has more to do than any of the other persons of the drama. He has 
abundant opportunity to display a roguish spirit, but not very much 
to shew off his customary drollery. Mr. Hahlev makes a good deal 
of Jabez — he contrives always to fill up hid characters with so much, 
pleasant by-play, that he is sure to come off with applause. This 
part is not exactly in his best line of acting, but his humor makes 
more of it than could be supposed. Wu must be excused if wo men- 
tion Madame Vestris amongst the gentlemen. However, when she 
puts off the garb of womankind, she does «ot loso much of her at- 
tractions. So long as we can behold her fine expressive countenance, 
observe her graceful manner, and hear her harmonious voice, it mat- 
ters not whether she be called man or woman. She represented Felix 
very pleasingly, and sang with charming effect. Miss Patox, now, 
we could not afford to lose sight of as a lady — to disrobe her, and 
encase her in the less flowing and less attractive habit of the Lords 
of the Creation, would be to deprive her of those strictly feminine 
graces which bang around her. Whenever we see Miss Patox, we 
think of drawing-rooms, of balls, and routs ; and when we hear her 
sing, we imagine she is one of our party who obligingly favors us with 
a display of her admirable vocal powers. Mr. Nathan, the composer 
of the pleasing music of this piece, has been said to owe much to 
these ladies for the eminent success of their songs ; we are sure that 
Mr. Nathan, and every composer whose songs they warble, must 
feel themselves greatly indebted to them, because the finest music in 
bad hands must fail. By the bye, one of the newspaper critics says, 
that there arc many borrowed strains in the music. This we deny, 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



Nathan 1ms always appeared to us one of the most tasteful and 
original composers of the present time. But the fact is, in the com- 
bination of sounds adapted to similar expressions by two different mu- 
sicians totally ignorant of each other's works, there may be, and 
there has been, resemblances that could only be attributed to the sen- 
timent which the music was to express, being felt in the same way by 
each. Bishop is charged with being a great copyist ; Weber, whose 
fine music is the theme of admiration in Germany, is also charged 
with being a plagiarist, although he has evidently been guided in his 
compositions by the subject he has before him. In proof of this, let 
any one hear the music in Der Freischutz, and it will be remarked 
how closely the music describes or assimilates with the events of the 
passing scene. This could not be done but under the immediate in- 
fluence of the composer's own genius. With respect to Nathan's" 
music, it has also struck us as being exclusively suggested by the 
sentiment ; and any one who keeps his eye on the .words of his songs 
whilst they are executing, will, we are sure, be of % a similar opinion. 

The whole of tlus Opera of TheAlcaiil gave the highest satisfaction 
last night, and was received at the close with much applause by a 
crowded audience. — Exchange no Robbery followed, and created great 
mirth. 

After Der Freischutz, which attracts as much as ever, the plea- 
sant little piece of " I will have a Wife'' was well acted, and enter- 
tained highly. Mr. Bartley, as the Admiral, was excellent ; and 
Mr. Pear-han and Miss Povey sang very agreeably. 

Davis's Amphitheatre. — A military friend of ours was present the 
other night at the performance of The Battle of Waterloo, and de- 
clares that no stage representation could come nearer the realities of 
that glorious battle. — The Theatre was full last night. 

This evening there will be a brilliant FETE at the Royal Gardens, 
Vauxhall. The Illuminations, :hc Pantomime, the Parisian Juggler, 
Fire-works, &c. will surpass all former amusements on Gala nights, 
being in honor of His Majesty's birth-day. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 
Sir, I have been these last twelve months a constant reader, and 
great admirer of your truly independent, and largely circulated paper. 
I saw in it, on Monday, a paragraph respecting Miss Paton, and a- 
gree with you, that nothing can be said too great in that amiable 
lady's praise, both as to her public, as well as her private character ; 
though several malicious darts have been aimed at her by wicked and 
designing individuals. They are not worthy the name of men who 
would wish to injure a defenceless female. But I hope to see her 
nobly triumph over those base and foul conspirators. A. B.

The third performance of the new Opera of " The Aieaid ; or, the 
Secrets of Office," last night, proved equally successful as on the 
previous evenings. The public rarely glean any thing about the re* 
petitions of a new piec« from the newspapers, for they rarely trouble 
themselves with any theatrical notice after the first appearance of 
some novelty. Now, in our pages the public have a sure and constant 
source of information relative to the chief theatres, that does its 
little part towards assisting in topics of conversation for the day. — 
After the manner in which some one or two of the Newspapers spoke 
of the new Opera, it might have been thought that The Jllcaid was 
a total failure ; but in our pages the public will have found that three 
successive audiences have been so much pleased as to give the most 
decided marks of approbation. In fact, this Opera, if not the best 
production of Mr. Kenney's pen, it has its amusing points, and, at 
all events, is a good vehicle for music, as the situations admit of the 
songs and chorusses being properly introduced. The singing of Miss 
Patox and Madame Vestris is delightful, and every one acknowledges, 
that the composer, has well adapted his music to their respective 
voices. It seems that Miss Love had been intended to fill the part 
Mrs. Garrick represents, and was to have had some songs, but that 
young lady, it is said, thought there was one song too few for her; 
and so, alack ! she became suddenly " indisposed." Now, if this is 
really the case, it must be considered that the young lady has done a 
manifest injury to Mr. Kenney, Mr. Nathan, and the establishment 
that pays her for her services. After an author and a composer have 
relied on the talents of a particular performer, shaped the character, 
and prepared the music to the peculiar powers of the person in ques- 
tion, surely it is an act of great injustice, on account of a trifling ba- 
lance of superiority thrown into certain other characters, to refuse 
all assistance in completing that general effect which was proposed. — 
These throwin g-ttp of parts are also generally most injudicious as to 
the performer's own reputation. English audiences like good nature ; 
and in the present instance, had Miss Love undertaken "the character, 
what she might have expected the public would have said on the sub- 
ject, (considering the character less than her talents were competent 
to) is, " Miss Love had given a proof of her good sense and kind 
feeling in undertaking it." But now, the most widely circulated 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



Journals have hinted at the real cause of her " indisposition," and it 
will not add to her popularity. Miss Lovb has only to recover quickly, 
and do us the pleasure of appearing in Mr. Kkxnby's Opera, and all 
will he well. Whilst we make these observations, do not let it be sup- 
posed that any slight is intended to Mrs. Garrick, who so kindly un- 
dertook the character of Donna Francisco, at a short notice ; but 
that lady will acknowledge when music is adapted to one particular 
quality of voice, it cannot be sung by another of different quality with 
proper effect. Thus the songs of Donna Francisca are left out en- 
tirely, and the composer's labour so far thrown away. 

■ IMJI.IM — i —can— a— 

To-night is the twentieth time of the performance of Der Fret" 
schutz, and every night there has been a crowded and fashionable 
audience. It is certainly a very curious piece, and in after times any 
one who had not seen it, would be very apt to say. " Well, I'm sorry 
I did not go and see that Der Freisc/iutz." There is no knowing 
how much longer it is to be acted, for Managers themselves like va- 
riety.so we recommend those who have not seen the piece to go quickly. 

Vauxhall. — Last evening these Gardens " put on all their beauty 
and brilliancy." From an early hour the company began to assemble, 
and the gardens were soon filled. — The orchestra was under the con- 
troul of Mr. Rooke ; the overture from Der Freischutz was very ef- 
fectively performed, and there was a song " Even as the Sun," by 
Miss WiTham, a young lady of considerable promise. There were 
many beautiful devices in the fire-works. Up to an advanced hour 
this morning, waltzes, quadrilles, and Scotch reels were kept up, and 
we think there were not less than 20,000 persons present.

Listox, Harley, Cooper, and Johnson, were were well laughed at ; 
Mrs. C. Jones, Mrs. Gibbs, and Mrs. Garrick, had their share of ap- 
plause. — The duet by Miss Paton and Madame Vestris was, as it 
always is, encored. — The house was very full. 

Mr. Flemmington, the celebrated Ventriloquist, who gave an intro- 
ductory performance, at the Argyll Rooms, before His Royal High- 
ness the Duke of Sussex, and a select party, will make Ids first public 
appearance at The Argyll Rooms, on Monday evening next, in a Mu- 
sical and Ventriloquial Performance, embracing original matter and 
selections from the " Trip to Paris," and " Rogueries of Nicholas," 
in which he will display numerous nouvelle specimens of Ventriloquy. 
The voices of the fictitious characters will appear perfectly natural 
and unstrained, and be produced without the least exertion or move- 
ment of the lips or body. — The songs are to be accompanied. - 

The tragedy of Hamlet has been brought out at the Theatre at 
Naples, in the form of a ballet. In the last scene, amidst peals of 
thunder and clouds of smoke, Hamlet stabs the King, and the Ghost 
appears to testify his satisfaction. The piece abounds with the most 
grotesque dances, delightful music, and splendid dresses. 

A brother of a noble Duke is said to be the husband of a justly 
popular and icientific warbler. Report states the lady to have been 
led to the hymeneal altar so long ago as March last, in the city of

Miss Chester, by the advice of Dr. Philip, is gone into the country 
for ten days to recruit her health. Mrs. Chatterley will assume her

RUSSIAN THEATRICALS. 
The following extract of n letter from St. Petersburgh, dated May 
the 3d, gives us a faint idea how one of the best plays of our immor- 
tal Bard has been mutilated (both in Hs translation and adoption) in 
one of the principal cities of the Russian Empire : — 

" As I have now enumerated the principal amusements of the city, 

with the exception of theatrical ones, I shall proceed to relate to you 

to what a high pitch of refinement the Russians have arrived at in 

that respect, by describing to you the performances at the theatre on 

Monday evening last, which, commenced with Shakspeare v s tragedy of 

Othello. Othello appeared in a military cocked hat, Russian boots, 

and something over his shoulders more, resembling a Roman toga than 

any other theatrical apparel which I can liken to it. 'J he Senators all 

wore large helmets and sandals': This, as you may imagine, had a 

most ridiculous effect. Cassio appears to ho drinking with a mixed 

company in a tavern, when lago outers and sings a song, the subject 

of which is, that Englishmen can never fijjht til! they have eaten roast 

beef and drank sufficient to make them insensible of what they are 

doing. lago and Cas.sio then danced a mock minuet, when Cassio sang 

a song, and the other characters joined in chorus. In the fight which 

took place between Cassio and Roderigo, the seat of the latter was 

pierced first by Cassio, and then by lago. Roderigo, after about half 

a dozen somersets, (after the style of Grimaldi) tumbled down at the 

back of the stage. A wheel-barrow was then brought on the stage, 

guarded by a file of soldiers, into which were placed both Cassio and 

Roderigo, and wheeled off. Othello smothered JJesdemona with a pillow 

at least six feet in length. Emilia then came running in, pursued by 

her husband with a naked sword in his hand, who aiming it at his wife, 

struck Othello, and both immediately fell to fighting, when Iago was 

mortally wounded, and drove off in the same barrow which conveyed 

away Cassio and Roderigo. Othello then rushed to the back of the 

stage, and after imprinting a few kisses on the cheek of his murdered 

wife, fell on his sword, and then died. The house was very full, it being 

the fust night of its being performed in St. Petersburgh. The house 

is smaller than the Haymarket, and lighted with oil, which causes a 

most disagreeable smell. I think from J his description which I have 

furnished you with, you will perceive what conception the Russians 

have of one of the most deservedly admired Tragedies of the first 

tragic genius of the world/' 

If T. K. will apply at the Office, the number of The Theatrical Observer he 

^ants has been procured for him.

No. 846 Monday, Aug. 16, 18 24. Price Id. 

Miss Stephens made her first appearance on this stage on Satur- 
day night, and was received by a numerous and genteel audience, with 
those customary marks of public admiration and esteem which she so 
eminently merits for her professional talents and private virtues. — 
When we thus find the most delightful accomplishment in the posses- 
sion of an amiable young lady, its value is infinitely enhanced, and 
we can enjoy every fine expression of sentiment poured upon our senses 
amidst a flood of melody, without an intrusive thought to disturb its 
interesting purity, from the circumstance of knowing that there is not 
any incorrectness of conduct, or deficiency of generous feeling. A 
wantou may warble deliciously, and command the applause that vocal 
skill elicits at the moment of its display, but no sympathetic cord of 
the heart is touched, and we admire without any of that feeling which 
does honour to human nature. Not so with respect to Miss Stephens, 
who has passed through the ordeal of a Iheatrical life unspotted, 
and has thus obtained the respect and regard of all. The character 
of * / 7g??es, in the new Opera of Der Freischuiz, was the one selected 
for Miss Stephens's debut here ; and the cause of her taking this part 
in the room of Miss Noel, is very candidly and justly stated by the 
Manager in the following terms : — 

*' Miss STEPHENS having arrived in London, in pursuance of her engage- 
ment to this Theatre, was to have performed in a new -Comic Opera, prepared 
expressly for her First Appearance ; but the unabated and unprecedented at- 
traction of DER FREISCHUTZ has rendered it impossible, from due respect 
to Public curiosity, to suspend the representations of that very extraordinary 
production : and in order that the musical world may, at the same time, be gra- 
tified by the pledged performances of this distinguished favorite. Miss Ste- 
phens has been prevailed on by the Manager to wave her scruples in regard 
to dispossessing Miss Noei, of a part which she has heretofore sustained with 
bo much credit and ability, (and which Miss Noel has cheerfully resigned to 
such distinguished talent) and to perform the character of Agnes, with addition- 
al Songs bv Weber, during the short term of her Engagement ; she will ap- 
pear, for the Second Time, tujs Evening." 

Mi?s Stephens executed the fine music of Weber in the most de- 
lightful manner. The scena was given in a manner that stilled the 
audience into a depth of attention, which was terminated by excla- 
mations of " beautiful !" and the most enthusiastic applause, Mr. 
Braham, also, gave all his songs in the most chaste and beautiful 
style. " Good night /* was sung by him, in particular, with superior 
eilectt 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



The Alcaid was rcceh'ed on Saturday night with great favour, 
and several of the songs were encored. The following duet by Miss 
Paton and Madame Vestris, is constantly called for a second time. 

Oh ! happy, happy, happy lovers ! 

Happy youth, and happy maid, 
When tremblingly each heart discovers 
All its love by love repaid. 

Grateful bosoms beat. 
Raptured glances meet, 
Tn a gentle sigh. 
All your sorrows die — 
Oh ! happy, happy, happy lovers ! 
Happy youth, and happy maid ! 

Hope's dream delighting, 
Past pangs requiting. 
Thoughts full of heaven, confining and free ; 
No void left aching, 
Tender hearts breaking, — 
When will that day come for you and for me ! 

Oh S happy, happy, &c. &c. 

" * The whole of the Songs are published by Mr. Miller, New Bridge Street, 
Blackfriars, and may be had in the Theatre. 

Vauxhall — The Proprietors intend this evening to exhibit their 
Gardens, with the same matchless splendour as on the King's Birth 
Day, in honor of His Royal Highness the Duke of York. 

Mr. Flemmington, the Ventriloquist, is to perform this evening, at 
the Argyll Rooms. 

Miss Love. — We have received the following Letter, in reference 
to our observations, in our number of Friday last, on this young lady 
not performing in Mr. Kenney's Opera as was proposed. We will not 
take upon us to say, that Miss Love is not at present unwell, which 
every one must regret, but we would ask her this question — did she 
not shew some objection to her list of Songs in The Jllcaid ; and was 
she not immediately after, announced to be " indisposed v> We do 
not make this enquiry with a view to insist upon that " indisposition" 
being assumed, but merely to vindicate ourselves for the remarks we 
made. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir — I am not a little surprised, knowing your general liberality, that you 
should have mentioned the illness of Miss Love in the way you have, for it is 
out of the power of any one to say that Miss Love has not always proved her- 
self ready to appear before the public, when occasion requires, and it is well 
known that she has taken characters far above her powers, when the illness of 
other performers have prevented them from taking their own parts. Miss Love 
is really unwell, or she would not disappoint her patrons and friends. I am 
sure you will correct your error, and your informant, whoever he is, ought to 
come forward and publicly declare fcfee error he has fallen into, and do justice 
to a truly amiable and deserving female. 

I am, Sir, A Constant Readeb of your Journal.

i^ap^iiariict --£Ijcatre» 

Lover's Quarrels was the riist piece last night ; and was eery 
pleasantly noted. This plan of giving a short Farce for the opening 
of the performances, is very judicious, as it affords time for those 
whose occupations or habits make it inconvenient to go to the Theatre 
earlier than half-past seven or eight o'clock. By the present arrange- 
ment, such persons can arrive in time for the remaining performances, 
and see them complete, instead of finding, as is customary in our 
Theatres at the hour alluded to, one act of the three or rive act piece 
over. Accordingly, the commencement of the new Opera of The 
Alcaid can be easily reached after a six o'clock dinner. This attention 
to the fashionable world is highly commendable, because it favors the 
patronage of the stage by the higher classes, a point which, if more at- 
tended to by the Managers of our " National Theatres," might brin b ' 
back the British Stage to the degree of fashionable distinction en- 
joyed by that Italian Stage in our British metropolis, wlrch has with 
po anti-English a feeling, been honored with the title of " The King's 
Theatre." Wc may here take the opportunity of replying to some 
remarks that have been made upon our paying so little attention to 
the Italian Theatre in the Haymarket. The fact is, wc are inclined 
to promote the interests of that native talent which wc conceive is as 
worthy of admiration as any of foreign growth. Yet, we are not so 
illiberal as to shut out talent because it i3 foreign ; but we shall ever 
strenuously object to the Royal patronage being bestowed in an es- 
pecial manner, not only on foreign performers, but on a species of 
entertainment very far from being accordant with English feelings. — 
We do not say there should be no Italian Stage, but wc do say, tlm 
Italian Stage should not have the shadow of superiority over the 
British Stage. Wc will only add, that we trust His Majesty; who 
is an Englishman at heart, may be pleased to take the view of this 
subject that we do, and render the Stage of his own Country the first 
honor. Miss Pa ton and Madame Vestkts, in The Alcaid, sang de- 
lightfully. We are happy to say, that Miss Love appeared last night 
in the character intended for her in this Opera. She gave her songs 
with much effect, and received considerable applause. — It was with no 
feelings of hostility to this lady that wc made the remarks we offered. 

Love, Law, and Physic was acted, for the first time this season ; 
Mr. Liston's, Lubin Log, and Mr. Barley's Flexible, were highly 
amusing, the latter gentleman was encored in " The Humours of a 
Playhouse.'* Mi. Wilkinson, as Andrew, was well received, and the 
other ladies and gentlemen, played the minor characters with consi- 
derable spirit. — The house was full' in all parts. * 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Miss Stephens and Mr. Braham again gave the music in Der 
Freischutz with the finest effect, and received immense applause. 
The after-pieces of Military Tactics and Love among the Roses were 
amusing. — The house was crowded. 

Vauxhall. — Did not the proprietors of these Gardens feel " that 
idle wishes are very idle things/' they would, we presume, wish that 
every evening on which their entertainments opened fell on a royal 
birth-day ; and in this wish they woul' 1 be very excusable, from the 
overflow of visitors which thronged to this favorite summer promenade 
on the King's birth-day, and on last evening, in honor of the anni- 
versary of the birth-day of the Duke of York The crowds were im- 
mense — the fire-works most brilliant, and the music, vocal and in- 
strumental, delightful, and the very ham and chickens seemed better 
than ever. — Such is the effect of the magic of this paradise. 

The Battle of JFaterloo continues to draw crowded houses to Mr. 
Davis's Theatre in the Westminster Road. 

Mr. Flemmixgtox was mo9t nattering received, last night, at the 
Argyll Rooms. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sin, 

Seeing my Letter to you inserted to day, and your explanation, 
with two or three questions in it, I will answer them. Miss Love did 
make some slight objections to the songs- intended for her in " The 
Alcaid" for they were not exactly suited to her powers, and I trust 
she was right in the objection, for there was then time for them to be 
altered ; aud that she was announced to be indisposed shortly after 
that, is also true, but is that any reason why her illness should be 
assumed, because she had made some objections to her part. I think 
the supposition is very unfair; but Miss Love has vindicated herself, 
in coming forward to take the part, originally intended for her, as 
soon as she recovered herself sufficiently to perform.

No. 848 Wednesday, Aug. 18, 1824. Price Id. 

Our inventinc genius hardly affords us a change of terms where- 
with to eutertain our readers on the subject of Der Freischutz. If 
we understood the German tongue, it might be a little variety to give 
our sentiments over again in that language, which would enable us, 
at least, to give some additional weight to our remarks. The best 
tiling' we can say of this extraordinary, and therefore attractive ope- 
ratic drama, is, that the appearance of the interesting Miss Ste- 
phens, in Agne3, a$? this Theatre, has, as a punning friend observes, 
given fresh shoots to the " Freischutz." 

His Royal Highness, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Esterhazy, 
the Countesses of. Guildford and Paulett, the Countess Lieven, 
Ladies Pccock, Francis, and Bellingham, the Marquis of Bute, 
and Colonel Berkeley, were among the visitors — The house was 
tilled in every part at an early hour.

Jl Day Jlfter the JFedding, The jJlcaid, with Married and Single, 
were performed last night to a full house. In the first piece Mr. Vis- 
ing and Mrs. Gibes, were highly amusing, and at its conclusion Mr. 
Vining came forward to apologize for the absence of Mr. Williams, 
whom he said was taken suddenly ill, but Mr. Lee would, with their 
leave, appear as Gregorio, which character he supported highly re- 
spectable. Miss Paton and Madame Vestris were encored. 

Sadler's Wells. — We are happy to find this pleasing and deserving 
establishment has once more regained its wonted popularity. Much 
is due to the spirited and determined exertions of the proprietors, for 
the rank it holds amongst the other minor establishments. The en- 
tertainments are such as cannot fail to be attractive, possessing, as 
they do, both talent and variety ; -and from their continued display of 
every novelty, they are entitled to the approbation they nightly re- 
ceive. A new musical piece was brought forward on Monday last, en- 
titled The Mistakes of a <Vight 7 which had a very favorable reception 
The united efforts of the actors created the greatest mirth throughout 
the piece ; and it was announced for repetition during the week amidst 
general applause. Miss Vincent is delighting her auditory with her 
inimitable versatile powers, in a clever written production, called 
Disguises ; or, Two Stages from Gretna. It is full of whim, va- 
riety, and bustle, and is rendered doubly effective by the exertions of

We are happy to hear, that after an illness of twelve months, he in-

Sir, 

I, in common with many others, am desirous of calling the 
attention of the management of the Haymarkct Theatre to a regu- 
lation, existing, I believe, exclusively at that Theatre, which is that 
the doors open at six o'clock ; from which circumstance, any person 
going to the pit, is obliged (if the performances be very attractive) 
to lose half an hour, in order to be in time for a good seat. I wish 
}ou could prevail on the worthy management to open the doors at 
half-past six in future, which would confer a great service on

The Opera of JJer Freischulz was again repealed last night, for 
the 24th time. Mr. Braham and Miss Stephens sang their songs 
with beautiful effect, and were rapturously applauded. Mr. Bennett 
acted Casper uncommonly well, and was flatteringly received.— The 
other characters were well sustained. The Musical Entertainment of

The amusing one act piece of Lovers Quarrels was well acted last 
night, by Mr. W. West, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Ens wo rtii, Mrs Gibes. 
and Mrs. Clifford. The new Opera of The Jlvaicl, followed, m 
which Mr. Farren, Liston, Harley, Madame Vestris, and Miss 
Paton', were highly applauded. After which, the Farce of X, Y, Z, 
was performed here, for first time this season. Mr. Liston's .Neddy 
Bray, and Harlev's Boscius Jilldross, (first time) were excellent; — 
Mr. W. West's Ralph Hempseed, was very respectable, and he re- 
ceived coii3ideiablc applause. Miss Boyce, and Mrs. Windsor, were 
highly amusing as J\Irs. Jllouser, and Dora JWumvjelL

nounced for representation on Monday last ; the two principal cha-

to be repeated on Wednesday, to enable Mr. Warde to re-appear in 
that character ; and The Hypocrite is to be played on Thursday. — 
Mrs. G. Kemble's Comedy of Smiles and Tears is to be acted on 
Friday under Masonic patronage. Mr. Warde and Mr. Shuter have 
represented Doctor Cantwell and Maw-worm, in The Hypocrite, with 
much effect. — That Play drew an overflowing house. It was produced, 
no doubt, as an aid to Mr. Blnn's pamphlet, versus the anti-theatrical 
Puritan. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir — As the pages of your respectable publication are less occupied 
during the present season, with criticism upon what is termed the le- 
gitimate drama, you will probably oblige a constant reader with the 
following remarks upon the performances and performers of the JVew 
Surrey Theatre, which the daily bills announce to be under an " entire 
new management ;" now whether this be really so, or not, I do not 
know ; but this I do know, that the conduct of what comes before 
the audience is totally different to what it was, prior to such announce- 
ment ; and as I am one of those constant frequenters, who did not 
fail to express my disapprobation. I feel I ought to make the amende, 
by applauding the very evident reformation ; and I am not acquainted 
with any means so effectual as through the medium of your widely 
circulated and impartial Observer. 

The performances produced on Monday night, and advertised for 
the week, are such as might pass current at either of the winter es- 
tablishments ; but the melo-draraa that has particularly elicited these 
observations, is entitled The Burning Bridge ; the scene of which 
lies in China, and has given an opportunity to the artists for a display 
of talent unequalled by any of their brethren of the brush or pencil, 
in any Minor Theatre, and places them upon an equality with the first 
scene, or Diorama painters of the day. The costume does equal cre- 
dit to those concerned ; it is correct, chaste, and splendid, and all 
the parapharnalia corresponds. The performers are equally entitled 
to praise ; and first H. Kemble, by judiciously suppressing his accus- 
tomed violence, rendered his Tartar maniac more effective than is 
alwavs the case in similar characters, and his auditors marked their 
sense of his propriety by just applause. Rowbotham did great justice 
to the (supposed) consiience-stricken father. Hemmi.ngs should throw 
a little more animation into his passion for the fair Celinda, as it 
lacked a little the air of reality, but yet was highly respectable. — 
Auld and Harwood were also deserving credit. Celinda, the heioine, 
fell to the lot of Mrs. Loveday, and though totally opposite to what 
I had previously conceived to be her forte, she did ample justice to 
her character ; the dialogue she delivered with natural simplicity and 
truth ; and her attention to the most minute characteristics of her 
dress, rendered her identity as complete as, I conceive, scenic illusion 
will allow. This lady's versatility and uniform attention to whatever 
she has to do, little or much, would render her a great acquisition to 
any Theatre ; and if she perseveres, it is not too much to predict 
that better things await her than are to be met with in a Minor 
Theatre. Mrs. Young, as her attendant, sang a comic duet with 
Harwood, and acquitted herself with respectability: as did all the 
subordinate characters, and the curtain fell amidst cheers, real cheers 
of applause. I am, your Constant Reader,

Mrs. Chatterley repeated her Twelve Precisely for the 100th 
time we imagine. She is certainly very clever in it, and shews a 
great deal of spirit, and a very versatile talent. After this display 
of disguises, we had the amusing Operatic Comedy of Sweethearts 
and Wives. Mr. Kenney has in this piece, suited tho leading cha- 
racters so well to their several representatives, aad the dialogue is so 
a musing, .and at times interesting, that it always proves very acceptable 
to the public, and, accordingly, there was a very crowded house. — 
Mr. Ltston's Billy Lackaday is entertaining in the highest degree, 
and the author has been most fortunate in having this unique per- 
former to fill the part. Indeed, like the characters of Crockery and : 
Peter Phstoral, ; which were fitted exclusively for the late Mr. Tokely, 
Billy Lackaday has been made to measure for Liston with great ac- 
curacy ; and we conceive the above named characters afforded the- 
hint to Mr. Kenney, as Billy is a compound of both. By the bye, 
we should like to see Mr. Liston, in Crockery ,• there is no doubt but' 
he would rendoT it highly laughable, particularly as there are so many 
view miseries for him to indulge in.. Mr. W. Farren did the old Ad- 
miral extremely well. Mrs. Chatterley, since Miss Chester's re- 
tirement, has filled the part of Eugenia, and gives to it the greatest 
interest. Indeed, she acts this character, as she does many others. 
with the utmost truth of feeling, and leaves us no reason to regret 
the change. The Laura? of Madame Vjss.tb.is is as engaging as ever. 
She was encored last night, as she generally is, in Mr, Nathan's 
song of " fV7ty arc you wandering." We should have mentioned that 
Mr. Liston was likewise encored in his comic piece of melancholy 
harmony. The remaining characters were pleasantly supported by 
Messrs. Melrose, Vining, Lee, Mrs. Garrick, and Mrs. C. Jones. 
The latter lady is a general favourite, nay, a mighty one with the 
powers above. There is such a comfortable look about her, so much 
of good nature, although she can assume a little of the devil too, 
that she is always welcome. 

In the Farce of Two Strings to your Bow, which finished the 
night's entertainments, Madame Vkstris appeared to great advantage 
B9 Donna Clara, and was loudlv encored in Braiiam's air of" Reason 
and Love.' * Mr. Liston, in Lazarillo, was very amusing of course, 
and. the wkole piece was agreeably acted; 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



In t>er Frcischutss, we had again the delightful Miss Stephens, 
and the admirable Braham, who gave to the fine music of Wfber, 
the very best effect. Mr. H. Phillips, who fills the part of Rollo, 
displays his fine bass voice in a superior manner. — This gentleman is 
rising rapidly in his profession. IVliss Povey, we are happy to say, 
is again able to take her character of jinn in this Opera, and sang 
with her accustomed sweetness and taste. In The Reign of Twelve 
Jtouri, Miss Kelly ruled very engagingly, and Mr. Pearman sang 
with pleasing effect. Mr. W. Chapman does the little in Chekdttr 
sufficiently well. — The house was crowded. 

Vauxhall Gardens. — There will be a Spendid Gala To-night. 

The Cobourg Theatre was crowded to excess last night, to witness 
the performance of Jane Shore, or, as it. is called at the Cobourg, 
The King's Mistress. Miss Macau ley played Alicia respectably • 
but in her most serious scene an nwkard circumstance occurred from 
the scantiness of her robe. In falling to the ground, this lady exposed 
the greater part of her stockings which are usually concealed by tra- 
gedy heroines, and displayed by figurantes. The acting of Bengough, 
as Dumont, was excellent.

*' That infernal Page again !" as we have it in Figaro: so may 
we diurnal critics exclaim of the terrific Opera here, which being 
everlastingly presented to us, from vcrv lack of new terms whereby 
to notice it, wc may vety naturally exclaim, "That infernal Drr 
Freisehutz again !" — and an infernal piece it is. What the Diable 
can we now say about it ! Why, nothing more than that the JHahle. 
will have his day, or rather his night ; for he seems to rule nightly 
at this house. Vet, we do not mean to support the puritanical opi- 
nion that. " the Theatre is the Devil's own house ;" although the 
truth is, that many deeds of darkness are done here — vide, (if you 
can) the extinct gas-lights — and still, the morality of the stage is not 
thereby impeached. If any of our readers think this a paradox, let 
them go and see this extraordinary drama, and, then, they will find 
it a very palpable fact, and that " the Prince of Darkness," and his 
fire-works, cannot afieet our ' good works" But if this were doubt- 
ful, surely a spectator would derive confidence from knowing that 
there is more than one Angel in the piece ; Miss Sterh^s, for in- 
stance, whose heavenly voice is enough to melt the heart of the veriest, 
daemon that ever plagued mankind. We defy any person to hear her 
and not fee? that his best feelings were gratified. She is as capable of 
inspiring devotion, as she is of communicating the most delicate 
sense of tender and innocent sentiment. Whether she executes the 
most sublime piece of Handel, or the most playful air, bhe is still in 
our mind's eye one of those good .Angels who appear on earth to ex- 
tend harmony., and give a relish to us mortals, of the rational pleasures 
of this life. The audience of last night appeared fully sensible of her 
charming powers, and acknowledged their delight with great ani- 
mation. Mr. Bkaham also shared in the applause bestowed so justly 
on his unrivalled powers. i-Jis " Good •Vight," is sung with the ut- 
most taste, feeling, and science. When to the musical attractions 
are added the singularities of this drama, it is no wonder that snch 
crowds should be present at its performance every night. We find 
there are to be but a few more of the combined performances of Miss 
Stephens and Mr. Braham in JDcr Frei* chutz,, on account of their 
provincial engagements. Those, therefore, who have not seen the 
piece with them in it, should take care not to lose the opportunity. — 
The OvertHre was again encored last night — it is a very line and 
striking composition.

Time is fast consuming the allotted period for the. appearance of 
Miss Stephens and Mr. Braham, whom the Manager informs us, 
" having, long since, concluded peremptory engagements at the Pro- 
vincial Musical Festivals, cannot possibly extend their performances 
in this Theatre beyond Wednesday, the 1st of September, after which 
time the celebrated Der Freischutx must necessarily be withdrawn 
fiom representation/' — The house, on Saturday night, was crowded, 
and the applause great. 



The first piece of Saturday night was, " Of Age To-morrow," 
which was acted uncommonly -well in every character, but particularly 
so by Miss Love and Mr. Vining. That lady sang with veiy pleasing 
effect the Medley song, and that of " JS r o, my lovs, no,"' which were 
encored. We should, however, have first mentioned, that on entering 
the Theatre, we regretted to find, by manuscript placards on the front 
of the house, that Miss Paton had been suddenly and severely taken 
ill., which prevented her playing Polly, in The Beggar's Opera. No- 
thing was stated relative to any substitution of piece or performer : 
but at the end of the above mentioned Farce, Mr. W. Farren ap- 
peared, and addressed the audience to the following effect : — " Ladies 
and Gentlemen, I appear before you under rather unpleasant circum- 
stances ; I am requested by the Manager to make known to you, that 
Miss Paton has been taken suddenly ill, of which there was no in- 
timation at the Theatre until five o'clock this day. — (Mr. Farren here 
produced and read a letter from Miss Paton's Physician) But now, 
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have the pleasantest part of my duty toper- 
form. The Manager with that desire which he has always felt not on 
any occasion to disappoint the public, has accepted the services of a 
young lady who has never appeared on any stage,and who has been for 
some time anxious to make a debut here. With your kind permission 
she will undertake the part of Polly ; and coming forward as she 
does on this extraordinary occasion, without even a previous rehear- 
sal, she places the fullest confidence in your kindness, in passing 
over any defects." Loud applause followed this Address, and the 
Opera then commenced. When Polly had to appear, Mr. Farren 
led on the young lady, who appeared not more than seventeen or 
eighteen ; and of a pleasing person. She was welcomed in the most 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



friendly manner by the audience, but it was evident, throughout, that 
her extreme agitation considerably impeded the full effect ihe might 
have given to her songs. She was encored in " But he so teazed me,** 
and would, no doubt, have had the same mark of approbation be- 
stowed on some of her other songs, had not the audience conceived 
it was trying her powers too severely. She, certainly, has a good 
voice ; and as we find we shall have another opportunity of hearing 
her under less embarrassment, we shall not extend our remarks at 
present. Madame Vestris gave the songs of Macheath as admirably 
as any lady could. Mr. Farren and Mr. Lee were the Peachum and 
Lockit. The piece is so curtailed that the latter has hardly any thing 
to do. Mr. Farren acted Peachum very well. Mr. W. West played 
JFilch, and received applause in some instances. Mrs. Jones played 
Lucy with great spirit. — She frightened the new Polly in downright 
earnest. The entertainments concluded with the new Comedy of 
Married and Single. — The house wai very full. 

Sadler's Wells. — By the bills we perceive the Benefit of Grimaldi 
is fixed for this evening, and from the novelty, we have no doubt but 
a bumper will be the result, after an absence from the stage of more 
than twelve months, occasioned by the most severe illness ; he intends 
introducing a scene in which he will exhibit his unrivalled powers, and 
sing one of his mnch admired comic songs. His son is announced 
for the Clown on this occasion, which, added to the appearance of 
Grimaldi himself, is, we think, a novelty that must prove more than 
usually attractive. A new melo-drama,of which report speaks highly, 
is also prepared for this evening, a translation from the French, which 
has lately created a strong sensation in Paris, where it has been per* 
formed upwards of two hundred successive nights. The splendid pan- 
tomime, entitled Harlequin Faggot Maker ,r or, the Magic Bowl, is 
among the novelties, in which the celebrated Pantaloon, Barnes, is 
mentioned to appear in his original character, and Mr. J. S. Grimaldi, 
as the Clown, which name being coupled with Sadler's Wells, reminds 
us of the olden, as well as the " golden" times of this Theatre.

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. 853 Tuesday, Aug. 24 1824. Price Id. 

J)er Frbisckutz was yesterday evening repeated to an elegant 
and crowded auditory. The first act passed with its usual eclat, in 
which Mr. Braham exerted his transcendant talents with astonishing 
effect. At the conclusion, Mr. Bartley appeared, and his approach 
seemed to announce him the harbinger of unpleasant tidings, which 
was confirmed on his addressing the audience to the following effect. 

" Ladies and Gentlemen, — Previous to the appearance of Bliss 
Stephens, to me devolves the unpleasant duty of announcing that at 
this moment she is suffering from a severe cold and attendant hoarse- 
ness, and so great is the extent of* her indisposition, that no other 
lady, similarly circumstanced, would venture to appear before you ; 
but such is her anxious solicitude and consciousness of duty, that she 
has determined to make the arduous attempt of performing the part 
for which she has been announced this evening. I need not, Ladies 
and Gentlemen, observe how complicated and difficult ate the music 
and part she has to perform ; but firmly trust that the flattering in- 
dulgence with which she has ever been honored, will he extended to 
her on this occasion." 

This explanation and apology were duly received, and on the ap- 
pearance of Miss Stephens in the opening of the second act, she was 
greeted with unanimous plaudits, at which she seemed deeply affected, 
but on th(Sir subsiding, recovered her composure, and though evidently 
struggling with severe illness, she sung with great taste and science ; 
of course the usual encores were not pressed. It would be great in- 
justice not to notice Miss Povey ; she warbled delight fully ; and the 
remaining characters were well sustained. Free and Easy followed, 
in which Miss Kelly, if possible, excelled former efforts, in her arch 
and sprightly delineation of Gertrude. 



I^ap^marfect €lf)catre. 

The entertainments here are exactly of the description which we 
look for at the " Little Theatre." Now and then some music, and 
always a good share of humor and pleasantry. We need only refer 
to the play-bill of this evening, which contains three of the most 
amusing pieces, and which we are sure will be well acted. Mr. Lis- 
ton, Mr. Harley, Mr. W. Farren, Mr. Cooper, Mr. Vising, Mr. 
W. West, Madame Vestris, Miss Love, Miss Chester, Mrs. Gibes. 
&c. have conspicuous places.

Vauxall. — Last night these Gardens were unusually splendid, in 
order to celebrate the Birth-day of the Duke of Clarance. The even- 
ing being fine, the company assembled in great numbers. Various de- 
vices were tastefully hung along the different walks, and flags of 
Great Britain waved as triumphantly as in the proudest days of a 
Howe, a St. Vincent, or a Nelson. 

Davis's Amphitheatre.— The Battle of Waterloo, and the Pan- 
tomime of The Dragon of Wantley, attracted a full house last night. 

Surrey. — The grand Chinese melo-drama of The Burning Bridge 
was again repeated last night, and was excellently acted. 

Sadler's Wells — We understand Mr. Grimaldi had a bumper. 

# To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Mr. Editor, 

I am but a poor fellow, in short a complete Sylvester the 
Second, and rightful heir to the throne of all the Daggerwoods ; and, 
therefore, I deem myself compelled to inform the world, through the 
medium of your useful Publication, of the grievances I sustain thro* 
the performance of that infernal piece of music at the English Opera, 
entitled " Der Freischutz," which has put an end to many free looks- 
in at the E. O. II. I have been out of an engagement these two years, 
owing to the blowing-up of our barn at a little town, about two hun- 
dred miles from London, one night, occasioned by a barrel of gun- 
powder, of which we cheated a smuggler, in order to add Metropolitan 
effect to the last scene of a melo-drama. We lost our all, besides 
three donkies,whose capers whilst ascending to the airy regions seemed

danced nightly on the classic boards of our winter theatres. Alas ! 
I have ever since felt pinching hunger knawing my better parts in a

bestow their bones upon me, by this time I should not have a bone to

despairing eyes, and feel as if tottering on the rock of disappoint- 
ment, without a friendly peake to offer me assistance. The German

There was an excellent house here last night, and how could it be 
otherwise, when the charming Miss Stephens, and the inimitable 
Braham unite their vocal talents in executing the fine music of 
Weber. The Overture alone is a treat to the lovers of music. — A 
few more nights, and they are gone ! A new Afterpiece is in prepar- 
ation. 

l^a^nmvhtt <3Tf)ratre. 

As we expected, the three pieces of last night were acted in tha 
most excellent manner, and gave the highest delight to a very nu- 
merous audience. The first, The Young Quaker, is a Comedy well 
suited to this Theatre, being light and dashed with a little sentiment. 
It is a drama that requires good acting to keep up its very existence, 
for in bad hands it would be stupid enough. Every character was 
well filled, last night, and, therefore, we never saw it more effective. 
Mr. Vjning, as Young Sadboy, looks and represents the gay Quaker 
as well as could be desired. Captain Ambush was not badly done by 
Mr. Johnson : but high Comedy parts were in the keeping of Messrs. 
Harlev and Liston. The Spatterdash of the former is a very amus- 
ing performance, and he received great applause in giving the token, 
and in the drunken-scene where he bears off old Chronicle from the 
party, to save him from getting more forward. Mr. Liston, in Clod, 
whenever he appeared, set the audience grinning, and his exits with 
his droll look and " the White Lion '" convulsed every one with 
laughter. Miss Love played Araminta very like a sprightly young 
lady who would have the man of her choice whether mamma liked it 
or not ; and she sang the air of " // was a lover and Ids lass/* and 
also " Gramchree," very delightfully, and was much applauded. — 
Miss Chester made a most interesting Dinah Primrose, and her dis- 
tress drew a tear from many. 

The next piece was the one-act Farce of Intrigue, on which oc- 
casion Mr. Barley and Mr. Cooper, appeared for the first time, as 
Tom and Varnish. The former gentleman kept up the character of 
the jealous, timid husband, with the greatest humor and effect, and 
Mr. Cooper made the hypocritical rake very conspicuous. The act- 
ing of Mr. Vining, as Captain Ramblcton, was effective. The charm- 
ing Madame Vestris played Ellen very delightfully, and sang in her 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



accustomed rich and sweet style : but the duet with Mr. Harley, of 
" When a little Farm we keep," was given in such humor and spirit, 
that a thundering encore was the inevitable consequence. Altogether 
Intrigue went off most pleasantly. That capital Farce of Colman's, 
X, Y, Z, was the concluding entertainment, and all we shall say is, 
that whoever has not seen Mr. Ltston play Neddy Bray, can have no 
idea of the comicality of the performance. Mr. Harley represented 
Mr. Manager Alldross with all his customary humor, and the piece 
in its other parts was well supported. Mr. W. West, certainly, in 
Ralph Hempseed, does not look rascal enough, but he shewed he well 
■understood the character. The amusements of this night were so 
highly entertaining from beginning to end, that the audience had hardly 
time to recover for a moment from loud laughter. In truth, we never 
were more gratified, and we, therefore, for the sake of others who 
were not present, do intreat the Manager to favour us with a repe- 
tition of these three pieces, and he may rely on it he will have another 
crowded house. 

The Surrey Theatre was very well attended last night. 

The Grand Gala, in honour of the Duke op Clarence's Birth-day, 

will be repeated this Evening at Vauxhall. 

Edinburgh Theatre. — On Thursday night Miss Tree had her be- 
nefit, when the Opera of Native Land, with the entertainment of 
Clari, were performed. The house overflowed in every part, and Miss 
Tree performed and sang with exquisite feeling and effect. She was 
encored in the favorite air of lt My heart is sair for somebody*' " Rest 
Warrior, Rest," which was given in her finest style, and several 
other airs. Mr. Sinclair and Miss. Hallande lent their effective aid, 
and the whole went off with great eclat. Miss Hallande also had an 
excellent house last night, and was encored in two of her songs. — 
British Press. 

On Wednesday last, during the last act of Macbeth, in the Cork 
Theatre, an accident occurred, which for a moment excited very ge- 
neral alarm iu the house. Mrs. Daly, who performed Lady Macbeth, 
in the scene with the Physician, unfortunately came near a candle 
which was placed upon a tabic at the left side of the stage, when the 
flame caught the light drapery which she wore, and in a moment it 
appeared in a blaze. Some gentlemen leaped from the boxes on the 
stage, and the performers who were on the boards ran to her assis- 
tance ; but before they had reached her Mrs. Daly contrived to ex- 
tinguish the flames, without having sustained any injury. — The Play 
then proceeded without interruption. Mr. Macready was the Mac- 
beth. 

Mr. Kean is still playing in Dublin.

To set out with The Blue Devils, is generally considered no good 
token of the happiness of your establishment — this may bo true, as 
to our own proper homes, but it is otherwise here. At this house The 
Blue Devils usually inspires mirth, and forms one of the symptoms 
of good management. Last night this was the case, for The Blue 
Devils eked out the entertainment of the visitors of this meriy " Lit- 
tle Theatre," and did not diminish the pleasure felt in the company 
of Sweethearts and Wives, or Married and Single. 

Some may think the writing of this little periodical a very ea*? 
matter ; and so it is as to quantity of matter; but the difficulty lie$ 
in being placed in such a situation as we now are, that is, the being 
compelled to speak of a Piece for the 30th time, and thus being ut- 
terly worn tbread-bare in oar expressions upon it. Der Freischutz 
on our Paper, is enough to frighten our gentle readers into au utter 
abhorrence of us. We cannot help it: we must do our duty as faith- 
ful recorders of the theatrical proceedings of the previous evening. — - 
We, therefore, proclaim it again, that Der Freischutz was last night 
honored by the attendance of a crowd of the curious, who evinced 
the usual quantum of surprise derived from the horrors of the Wolf's 
Glen, and of pleasure from the sweet watbling of the Stephens and 
the Povey ; and the brilliant strains of the wonderful Braham. We 
strongly recommend those who have ears, (we will excuse all of as- 
sinine length) to go and hear Weber's striking composition in this 
piece. The overture, chorusses, and several of the songs, are finely 
adapted to the subject of the drama, which we conceive the best 
proof of the genius of the composer. Any stringer oi crotchets may 
put together a fair modicum of harmony, but to convey with true effect 
the sentiment or the business of the passing scene, by the strains of 
music, is only within the ability of a composer of genuine talent. 

Royal Amphitheatre. — The Battle of Waterloo. — Last night, 
the 111 th consecutive representation of that remarkable event at- 
tracted an audience as numerous as usual, who appeared highly de- 
lighted with the roar of the deep-mouthed artillery, and " allthe 
pride, pomp, aud circumstance of glorious war." Ducrow is a most

powerful auxiliary to the allied forces in this mimic scene of terror and 
triumph. He sets at defiance the Newtonian system of gravity, and 
seems to hover over, rather than rest upon the noble animal that 
bears him. His pantomimic scenes are perfect, and impart, if we may 
here use the word, intellectual entertainment. 

Surrey. — This house, last night, was well filled in the course of 
the evening, to see The Burning Bridge, and JFaverley. In the 
former piece the acting of Mr. H. Kemble, as the supposed Tartar 
maniac, was excellent. Mrs. Loveday performed Celinda with her 
accustomed ability, and received much applause. The Comic Dance 
by Messrs. Flex:>iore, Jonas, and Honor, was encored. The Ro- 
mance of JFaverley followed : the acting was excellent, particularly 
by Mr. H. Kemble, Mr. Loveday, Mrs. Sheppard, &c. — The duet 
between Messrs. Wyatt and Harwooi> was loudly encored. 

Sadler's Wells. — The new piece, entitled The Fatal Island ; and 
the Hour of Four , was repeated last night, to a very good house ; 
after which, the Interlude of Disguises was well performed by Mr. 
Lancaster, and Miss Vincent, the latter sustaining with great spirit, 
six different characters. The Pantomime of Harlequin Faggot Jlfa- 
her followed and created much amusement. 

The West London Theatre is now open for the Season under the 
Management of Mr. W. R. Beverley. 

The Late John Kemble. — A Letter appeared in the John Bull, of 
last Sunday, which contained arguments against the propriety of ad- 
mitting the proposed monument to that eminent man, the late Mr. 
Kemble, into Westminster Abbey. The letter-writer acknowledged 
that he was but little acquainted with theatres or actors, yet he as- 
sumes a power of judging which demanded an intimate knowledge of 
the history of the stage. This person would admit to the sacred 
fane the record of the poet's genius, but would deny it to him whose 
o-enius gave living delineations, that partook equally of the sublime 
and beautiful. Mr. Kemble above all others of his profession, best 
merited the honor intended to his memory. He was an admirable tra- 
gedian, and the creator of a classic stage ; and to him are we chiefly 
indebted for a full and impressive relish of the finest of the immortal 
Shakspf.are's Plays. In this point of view, (\i not as an embodier 
of the passions) he has a higher claim to a public monument amongst 
the illustrious dead, than even Garrick, whose monument, the letter- 
writer asserts, might merit a place in Westminster Abbey, because he 
was a poet. But surely Garrick would never have been thus distin- 
guished for his writings. It was as a tragedian alone that he had the 
sculptured honors bestowed on him, whilst Kemble has a claim on 
public feeling both as a most distirguished tragedian, and ono who 
rendered the British Stage truly honorable to the taste of his country.

One of the most crowded and genteel audiences of the season graced 
this Theatre last night. The pieces which formed the attraction of 
the evening, were Of jfge To-morrow, Tha Hypocrite, and Love, 
Law, and Physic : and before we say anything of these perform- 
ances, we shall just remark, that the combination of amusing pieces, 
here proves the Manager to understand thoroughly how to cater for 
the public entertainment ; and we would press it upon the notice of 
the managers of our great winter theatres, that the offering a short 
Farce for the opening, affords a great convenience to the fashionable 
world, who can thus have the opportunity of coining into the house 
at about eight o'clock, in time to see the chief piece of the night entire. 
We assert, that this arrangement would prove of immense advantage 
to the winter houses, and we hope for their own interests, the mana- 
gers will take it into serious consideration. 

The Farce Of Age 'To-morrow was most pleasantly performed. — • 
Mr. Vising, as Frederick, exerted himself with very amusing effect. 
We think highly of this gentleman, and should be happy to see him 
on our winter hoards. It is not easy to say what line of performance 
ho would invade, because he has very general talents, but we will say 
that in the line of utility he would always prove valuable. We know 
nothing of Mr. Vining but as a performer here — we never in any shape 
came in contact with him — but we say it from our own impressions, 
that he is calculated to be a popular performer on our gieat metro- 
politan stage. Miss Love, as Maria, sang very delightfully, and 
the other characters were well supported by Mr. Williams', Mr. Wil- 
kinson, (wlro made Jllolkus very comic) Miss J. Scott, (who is a very 
lovely young lady) and the pains-taking Mrs. Kendall, who repre- 
sented Lady Brumback instead of Mrs. Windsor. We now come to 
The Hypocrite , and although we adhere to our often expressed opi- 
nion, that this Play does serious injury to the cause of religion , by 
fostering prejudice against its ministers, because there is no distin- 
guishing in vulgar conception, between real and assumed sanctity of 
manner, still we must acknowledge that the unthinking and the half- 
thinking multitude are powerfully attracted by this piece, and, there- 
fore, that managers, in their necessity, cannot resist the temptation 
of offering it for representation. On the present occasion the novelty 
was Mr. W. Farren's undertaking the character of Doctor Cantwell. 
We will cut the matter criticism on his attempt very short — nature- 
has forbid him — he has not power of expression requisite for the part. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER , 



Cantw ell's villanies have to be indexed or suppressed at pleasure on 
Ids countenance : now Mr. Fjlrren's features admit of no such ex- 
emplification of mind. He has a regular set of expressions for every 
character, and although his understanding is excellent, he wants the 
physical power necessary to any character that depends on varied im- 
pulses exhibited by the features. This defect of nature necessarily 
confines Mr. Farrem to characters of habit, rather than of intellect ; 
and he in vain strives to rise bcvond the former. Dowton makes 
points by a look, and so, in some degree docs Terry, but Farren 
is absolutely cut off from such means of success. Mr. Farren, it 
must be acknowledged, is a man of considerable professional talent, 
but he should be very careful to assume no character in which hie pe- 
culiar manner, his features, and his voice are not likely ta prove 
effective. One of the most admirably performed characters of Mrs. 
CiiatterleY's, is her Charlotte in this Play : she merited and received 
the greatest applause. In fact, with respect to the other characters, 
the whole Comedy was excellently acted ; but we should state that the 
part of the Old Lady Lambert was, as to the last four acts, sustained 
by Mrs. Kendall. Mrs. Windsor had appeared in that character in 
the first act, but evidently labouring under severe indisposition. At 
the end of that act, Mr. Cooper came forward and stated Mrs. 
Windsor's illness, and requested leave for Mrs. Kendall to read the 
part, which was, of course, readily acceeded to by the audience. — 
The Play went off extremely well. In the last piece, Love, Law, and 
Physic, Mr. Harley was exceedingly entertaining as Flexible, and 
Mr. Liston most amusing as Lubin Log. 



It is really unnecessary for us to say a word about the present per- 
formances here. Dcr Freisehutz has gained such favor that it is 
nightly attended by crowds; and the afterpieces are always of a na- 
ture to entertain, particularly if the inimitable Miss Kelly has a part 
in them. At the end of the second act of Der Freisehutz, Mr, 
Bartley appeared and stated that Miss Stephens, who had been 
labouring under severe indisposition, was unable to proceed with her 
character, and that trusting to such circumstances, they would be 
under the necessity of concluding the piece without her unrivalled aid. 

An Attempt to set Fire to the Exeter Tiievtre. — During the tempo- 
rary absence of the checque-taker, just at the commencement of the Farce, some 
malicious person put a lighted paper into a lamp in the passage leading to the 
pit, which setting lire to the cotton, produced a high flame and a great deal of 
smoke, which the current of air through the passage naturally conveyed into 
the pit ; this attempt having been accompanied by the cry of '* Fire .'" the 
confusion which took place may be easily conceived. — Ladies were shrieking 
and fainting in various directions, and in an instant the most timid of the au- 
dience found themselves in safety on the outside of the Theatre, but those who 
remained were soon satisfied by the exertions of Mr. Harvey, the Stage-ma- 
nager, of their security. " God save the Ring," was then played, and the per- 
formance proceeded.

AS 



Another brilliant audience honored this Theatre, to hear Weber's 
music executed by the delightful Miss Stephens, and the admirable 
Braham. If' we were to write as ponderous volumes as ever came 
from a Geiman pen, we could not enlarge with the least effect, upon 
the observations we have already made on this drama. So, we shall 
only again say to the lovers of music who have not yet heard that 
which is introduced into this piece — " go, and you will assuredly be 
gratified." 

i^aj^niarftet €f)cati:e* 

Miss Paton, it would appear, is either unable to perform here at 
present, or has entered into some other professional arrangements. — 
We should much regret if it turns out that she is induced by any mis- 
understanding to give up her engagement here. However it may be, 
The Beggar's Opera was performed here last night, and the character 
of Polly not represented by her, but was supported by " the Young 
Lady," whom we stated the other day, had come forward so suddenly 
to supply Miss Paton's absence. On that occasion she acquitted her- 
self with so much effect, that very general and deserved praise was 
bestowed on her efforts. This young lady, we understand, is a Miss 
Holmes; and the public will, therefore, have an opportunity of dis- 
tinguishing her hereafter. Her second attempt of last night, was 
highly creditable ; but her station as a vocalist must not yet be deemed 
to be in the first rank. — She is young, and has much to acquire. The 
audience gave her every proper encouragement, and she is so pleasing 
a singer that she cannot but be favorably received at all times, in the 
execution of music which she may have previously well studied. She 
was encored in " But he so teazed me," and " Cease your funning'? 

Madame Vestris played JWacheath : she is so charming in her pro- 
per sphere of feminine character, that we are quite out of temper to 
see her assume the dress and swagger of the masculine -gender. A 
pretty face is certainly a pretty face, whether under a cap or a hat, 
but our associations of ideas preclude the possibility of admiring a 
lovely woman, transfigured and disfigured by the moital coil of broad 
cloth, which envelopes the frame of us male monsters. Speaking of 
this lady, we may, without any painful reference to her biography, say 
this much ; that there is in her customary demeanour a sweetness of 
manner, and in her conduct a thorough spirit of good nature, that 
wakes her friends with those, who, under more rigid feelings, might 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



be disinclined to meet on equal terms. She was encored in u The 
heart of a man;' and '* How hapyy coi4d I be with either." As to 
the other characters of this cut-down Opera, they were respectably 
filled, but we do not desire to dwell on operatical pieces presented 
here, for we consider this is not their proper place. This Theatre, 
which is but a foot from its old scite, where every species of humor 
existed within the compass of a Foote, should continue chiefly de- 
voted to the same species of amusements, nor think it necessary to 
its interests to trench upon the province of the English Opera. Two 
small Theatres, which have distinct objects, cannot in this vast me- 
tropolis be considered as rivals. They have their several supporters, 
and find them in the same classes who will not be deterred from visit" 
ing the performances of one house because they have seen those of 
the other. 

The entertainments concluded with the last new Comedy of Married 
and Single, in which Mr. Farren was very amusing. 

We understand that Mi?s Paton has recovered from her indispo- 
sition, and that she is at present in treaty with Mr. Arnold, to suc- 
ceed Miss Stephens in Der Preischulz, on that lady's departure 
from the English Opera-House. 

Mr. C. Kemble, it is said, has gone to Germany, for the purpose 
of engaging Weber to superintend the musical department of Covent 
Garden Theatre. Der Freischutz is to be the first novcltv produced 
at both the great houses ; and we are happy to learn the differences 
so long pending have been amicably settled, and the old agreement ©f 
not engaging the performers belonging to the rival theatres have been 
established. 

Shocking Accident.— On Thursday night last, during the performances at 
the Suney Theatre, the audience was thrown into the most sensitive alarm, by 
an accident which took place on the stage, and which was likely to have ended 
fatally in its consequences. At the conclusion cf the piece entitled The Burn- 
ing Bridge, a Spectre (performed by Mr. Leslie) has to make its appearance 
to Konang, (Rowbotham) surrounded by clouds, while seated in a car. In 
descending from the top of the stage, by some accident the machinery came in 
contact with some of the burning materials, and the trappings with which the 
young gentleman was surrounded caught fire, and, in a short period he was en- 
veloped in flames, and in that awful situation he remained for some time, the 
car being too elevated for him to leap out, and he seemed not to be aware of 
the danger that threatened him until the car was about eighteen feet from the 
floor of the stage. The audience, on viewing the dreadful dilemma in which 
he was placed, expressed a feeling of horror, and several ladies fainted. The 
flames at length became so powerful, that Mr. Leslie leaped from the car to the 
stage, and fell with considerable violence, in conseqnence of which he was 
dreadfully injured about the. legs, &c The curtain immediately dropped, and 
the unfortunate young gentleman was carried into the r Green Room, and a sur- 
geon instantly procured. It was afterwards announced to the audience that he 
was not dangerously hurt, which seemed to appease their fears, as he was «on- 
sidered to be severely injured. He was conveyed home, and we understand 
that he is doing very well at present. — British Press.

Ox Saturday evening there were three popular pieces performed 
here, which drew an excellent house in all parts. The amusements 
commenced with Sweethearts and Wines, whieh Opera is now an es- 
tablished favorite with the public, owing to the able manner in which 
the principal characters are supported. On Mr. Liston* appearing, 
as Billy Lackaday, he was greeted from all parts of the house by 
clapping of hands. His sorrows and neglected love were heartily 
laughed at, and his lamentable song loudly encored. Mr. W. Farren, 
as the old, amorous, and warm-hearted Jidmiral, was very correct in 
his scenes with Eugenia. Mr. Vixing looked and acted the young 
Naval Officer with considerable spirit. Mr. Melrose sang the songs 
allotted to him with his usual judgment, and got some applause. Mi. 
Lee performed the part of Curtis highly respectable. Madame Ves- 
trls, as usual, was loudly encored in her song of" Why are you 
wandering." Miss Chester's Eugenia was an excellent performance, 
particularly in the concluding scene, where she discovers herself to 
her father-in-law, Admiral Franklyn, Mrs. G. Jones and Mr?. Gar- 
rick done great justice to Mrs. Bell and Susan. 

The pleasant little one-act Farce, entitled Intrigue, followed. Mr. 
H.arley's Tom was spirited and amusing. Mr. Vixixg bustled with 
sufficient flippancy through Captain Rambleton, and Mr. Coor-ER prosed 
characteristically enough through the moralising libertinism of Varnish. 
But the chief attraction was Madame Vestris, as Elian.- — This de- 
lightful actress performed this little part with her accustomed gaiety ; 
it was sprightly, arch, and fascinating. To enliven the performance 
still more, Madame Vestris introduced the song, " In merry Carlisle 
was a lady fair" in which she was highly applauded ; and, together 
with Harley, the pretty and very laughable duet, " When a little 
Farm we keep," which was loudly and deservedly encored. * 

X, Y, Z, concluded the evening's entertainment, in which Lis- 
ton's JVcddy Bray, and Harley's Roscius Alldross, were irresistibly 
laughable. Mr. W. West was also excellent in Ralph Hempseed.-^- 
Mrs. Mouser, by Miss Boyce, and the Dora Mumwcll of Mrs. C, 
Jones, gave great satisfaction. 



■-■— "" -■ • T - i v r ~ z r?rrr~ ■ »w.- ' .» - j »^ 



On Saturday evening we were again delightfully entertained with 
Der Freischutz, the chef 'Tccuvrc of Vox Weber, who may now 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



not inaptly, be denominated the modern Mozart of Germany. The 
Overture alone of this extraordinary composition, would establish its 
author a man of co-equal talent with the great musician alluded to : 
for, whether it be regarded for its terrific sublimity of grandeur ; or, 
its enchanting sweetness and harmonious effect, it must always prove 
equally acceptable to the man of science and the amateur of taste. — 
Mr. Braham and Miss Stephens, as usual, went through those parts 
of the music allotted to them, with that precision and judgment which 
ever characterizes those eminent performers. Mr. B. absolutely sets 
time at defiance, and accordingly sang with the same energy and effect 
that we have witnessed twenty years ago. Miss Stephens cannot 
fail to enrapture even the most fastidious ; and the little arch Miss 
Povey warbled with corresponding sweetness. Upon the whole, we 
never saw Der Frcischutz better represented. At the termination of 
the Opera, Mr. Hartley came, forward to announce that a German 
gentleman, who originally performed the part of Casper, would mnke 
his first appearance in London this evening, for Mr. Braham's Benefit, 
and on which occasion would resume his former character. Immense 
cheering followed this annunciation, but we were at a loss to guess 
at the exact cause, for no one could perform Casper better than Mr. 
Bennett who filled the character on Saturday night. 

Mr. Augustus Beral, a native of Germany, who was one of the 
original performers in Der Freischutz, at Dresden, Konigsberg, and 
Breslau, for upwards of 100 nights, plays the part of Casper this 
evening, for Mr. Braham's Benefit. This gentleman has only been 
three months in this country, so cannot be supposed to be quite per- 
fect in the pronunciation of our language, but he is said to possess a 
fine bass voice, and to sing the music in a very effective style. 

Mr. Mathews certainly appears on Friday. — A new Musical Farce 
has been written for him; it is understood to be another good humoured 
hit at the Americans, and is the production of a well-known pen. On 
the same evening also, the new Opera already announced under the 
title of The Frozen Lake, will be brought forward. — This is spirited 
management indeed. ___^_

The performance here last night, conferred great delight on a Hu- 
morous and genteel audience. The pieces represented were Love, 
Law, and Phytic, The Hypocrite, and Of Age To-morrow. We 
have already spoken of the Comedy, as being ably performed, par- 
ticularly by Mrs, Ciiatterley, Mr. W. Farrgx, and Mr. Liston.— 
The other pieces were as pleasantly acted as could be wished. Mr, 
Liston and Mi. Karley in the first named Farce were highly comic. 



We were not present last night at Mr. Braham'? Benefit, for the 
best reason in the world ; indeed, exactly such a reason as Ma*. Bra- 
ham would himself urge, namely, that we were too fond of our money. 
We make a rule, and a wise one we think it, never to enter a theatre 
at our own cost ; let it not be supposed that we deem theatrical en- 
tertainments unworthy of their full remuneration; bat there is a great 
difference between us and those who merely go to the Piny to seek 
their own gratification. We arc almost compelled, cx-ofncio, to visit 
the Theatres, in order to report proceedings to our subscribers and 
occasional readers : but it is long since we expluined to our friends 
that we could not, with our moderate profits, undertake to detail the 
proceedings of Benefits at our own expense. Now, in the present in- 
stance, we gratuitously inserted a paragraph in order to promote Mr. 
Braham's interests, and this little Paper affords a more advantageous 
line of circulation than any political publication could effect) yet the 
same gentleman neglects to provide for our admission to a seat, which 
is much less in value than what we had a right to charge For his pa- 
ragraph. We care for no man, let his station be what it may, beyond 
his merits. Managers and actors we hold in respect, exactly so fai- 
as they respect those principles which should govern liberal minds. — . 
Mark reader — by that expression of "liberal minds," do not suppose 
we refer to pecuniary liberality : — we have before challenged the green- 
rooms to produce one solitary instance of our having accepted a bribe 
for our theatrical opinions or remarks : we have, in fact, rejected 
many such offers : and have invariably returned the gratuity with this 
answer, that " we could not accept of money from any performer ; 
although we should always be happy to speak of merit with adequate 
praise, and be as lenient iu regard to faults as possible.*' After all

that \Ve have now srrnl in reference to Mr. Braham on this occasion ; 
the public will not find th the less just in our, remarks on his wonder- 
ful vocal powers. We should contemn ourselves could we be influenced 
by any considerations to swerve from delivering what we feel to be the 
truth. If performers chuse to take advantage of our columns, and 
our impartiality, and yet slight us, we cannot help it — if they do not 
do their duty, we shall, at least, endeavour steadily to perform ours.

The Battle of Waterloo was last night, repeated to a crowded house 
in all parts, after which, for the first time, a new Grand Melo-drama 
was produced, founded on that terrific tradition of Der Freischutz ; 
it is awfully splendid, and was well received, and we have no doubt, 
will prove highly productive to the Proprietor of the Amphitheatre. 

Miss Edmiston. — This young lady, who some time ago, occupied 
such a distinguished rank in the higher walks of the tragic muse at 
"Old Drury," is now performing in Glasgow, with the greatest appro- 
bation of that " thinking people/' who form its polished community. 
From a file of papers now laying on our table we select the following 
short extract, respecting the opinion of a brother critic of the North, 
on the representation of Lady Macbeth by this promising actress: — 
He says u Miss Edmiston's appearance is in good keeping with our 
notions of Lady Macbeth : her person being above the middle size, 
her figure of fair proportion, her gait in some measure dignified, and 
her gesture sweeping and energetic. The only deficiency was in 
strength, richness and command of voice. This was amply compen- 
sated for, however, by her just discrimination throughout, and particu- 
larly in the fifth scene (first act), which we have always considered 
amongst the most difficult in the play. It is here where the extraor- 
dinary character of Lady Macbeth is unfolded. The crimes she is 
about to commit are here first alluded to, and their atrocity, combined 
with the fearful imprecation — 

"Come, all you spirits, 
And fill me, from the crown to the toe, topfull, 
Of direst cruelty." 

is apt to harass the feelings of an audience, unless given with discri- 
mination and prudence. This was admirably done by Miss Edmiston. 
Her manner too of instigating Macbeth to commit the murder was 
excellent ; rage, scorn and contempt, at his hesitation were delineated 
in her countenance, and conspicuous in the dignity of her action." 

Miss Hallande is now at the Newcastle Theatre, performing some 
of her principal characters. Last week she acted Florctta, in The 
Cabinet, and obtained the most distinguished applause. Miss H. is 
supported in the operatic department by Mr. C. Bland, of the York 
Theatre, who filled the part of Orlando in a very creditable manner,

Last night, the popular pieces of Twelve Precisely, (in which 
Mrs. Chatterley acted with her usual vivacity) with J\l<arried and 
Single, and Sweethearts and Wives, were performed to an excellent 
house. In the last piece, Mr. VT. Farren, Mr. Liston, Mr. Vining., 
Miss Chester, Mis. C. Jones, Madame Vestris, &c. were much ap- 
plauded.

Her Frfaschutz is still the order of the night ; and draws num- 
bers to this house. Mr. Beral's appeal ance on Mr. Braham's night, 
appears to have answered his purpose ; but the Manager does not 
shew any desire to avail himself of a repetition of his services. In 
Free and Easy, Miss Kelly, Mr. Wrench, Mr. Hartley, and Mi. 
W. Chapman, were highly entertaining. 

His Royal Highness. the Duke of Sussex, their Royal Highnesses, 
the Duke and Duchess of Clarence, and a large party of distinguished 
persons, honored Der Freischutz last night with their approbation. 
" God save the King," was called for on the Royal party being recog- 
nised, and the solo parts were sung with great effect by Miss Stephens, 
Miss Povey, and Mr. Braham. Lady Francis Stuart, Lord Wil- 
liam Lennox, Sir George Warrender, Mr. Ball Hughes, &c. &c. 
were amongst the fashionable company, which completely filled the 
house. 

We are promised some variety here shortly. It is said the ingeni- 
ous Mr. Peake has been mending his pen, and something amusing 
from it, will soon appear, in which the admirable Mathews will have a 
leading character. — The new Musical Piece is also in a forward state

THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



On Friday night, Mr. Farley had his Benefit at the Cheltenham 
Theatre. The Piny was Henri Quatre, followed by High Life below 
Stairs. Colonel Berkeley, Captain A. Berkeley, Mr. Dawkins, 
and Mr. Bankes, were the amateurs ; they performed more like re- 
gulars than many of our corps dramatique. The house was as crowded 
as Farley could possibly wish, and as hot as the black hole at 
Calcutta. 

Miss S. Booth is now performing at Sheffield. On Saturday last 
this fascinating actress appeared at the theatre of that town, in the 
character of Albina Jllandcville, in the pleasant Comedy of The 
tVill ; and in the afterpiece delighted the audience with her arch vi- 
vacity, in the representation of Priscilla Tomboy. 

Murder in a Theatre.— -Wonders will never cease — Monday night 
about six o'clock, our attention was attracted on passing by the Olym- 
pic in Wych Street, by crowds of persons who had assembled round 
that place of amusement. On enquiry as to the cause, we were in- 
formed that a private performance was to take place, and the evening's 
amusements were to consist of Rob Roy Jlfacgregor, Singing and 
Dancing, with the Farce of Bon Ton. Having obtained an admission 
we were induced to enter the house, in which there was a sprinkling of 
journeymen compositors, master bakers, and other respectable geniuses 
who entertained themselves whistling in the most discordant manner, 
until a few forlorn-looking fidlers made their appearance in the or- 
chestra, and scraped away with considerable melancholy, until the 
audience's original stupidity was sunk into profound lethergy. The 
curtain rose, and the piece commenced. It would be ridiculous to en- 
ter into a detail of the various circumstances which excited merriment 
among the audience. Rob Roy certainly acquitted himself with de- 
cency, considering that he has a bad voice and little genius to manage 
it. A Mr. Hastings played the part of Old Owen with some merit, 
and with attention he may become a good actor.-— We understand he 
is a country performer. But a3 to the majority of the rest of the gen- 
tlemen actors, we never beheld in the whole course of our theatrical 
experience, such murder as disgraced the boards of that interesting 
little Theatre. The ladies performed their parts very well, especially 
Mrs. Melville, and the lady who performed Martha. The Theatre, 
we understand, is shortly to open with a talented company ; and is to 
be considerably altered and decorated. A singular circumstance took 
place during the performance last night, and one seldom witnessed at 
any of our metropolitan theatres : the Manager paraded the pit and 
boxes in his shirt sleeves ! and we were much amused at the jolly and 
unsophisticated manner in which he appeared among the auditory. 

Davis's Amphitheatre, the Surrey, and Sadler's Wells, were re- 
spectably attended last- night.

The comic one-act Piece of Intrigue, the amusing Comedy of The 
Young Quaker, and the most laughable Farce of X, Y, Z, were 
again performed together last night to a crowded audience. Three 
such pieces in one night are almost too much for our risible faculties. 
The smile, the grin, the titter, the horse-laugh, were incessant proofs 
how greatly the audience were entertained. By the bye, we have se- 
veral times used the above vulgar expression of " horse-laugh*' and 
we do not take on us to defend its use, although it is so common. — 
But we pretend to be stable critics ; and, perhaps, there is no incon- 
gruity in denominating by the term in question, that violent exertion 
of lungs which resembles the noise of a neighing horse. There was 
a considerable deal of this neighing last night ; particularly at the 
White Lion ; the Token ; and the odd effects of the three last letters 
of the alphabet. A new Farce is in rehearsal at this Theatre. — 
Teasing made Easy is iD preparation : Mr. Wilkinson is to be the 
Peter Pastoral.

Miss Stephens concluded her engagement for this season, at this 
Theatre, last night. Her charming vocal powers have added to the 
celebrity of Weber's music, and greatly distinguished the English 
Opcra-Housc. She most modestly assumed the character in Der 
Freischutz, which Miss Noel so cheerfully resigned to her • and 
neither lady can suffer by the change in question. We shall rejoice 
to be again an auditor of Miss Stephens, whose qualities, public and 
private, are the theme of general approbation. — This young lady takes 
her Benefit this evening, and appears for the first time this season, as 
Susanna, in The Marriage of Figaro. 

A very amusing Piece, it is said, has been constructed on trie foun- 
dation of Mr. Mathews's late entertainment of* A Trip to America,' 
It is to be called u Jonathan in London ;'* and the inimitable Ma- 
thews has the chief character. Report gives the authorship to one 
of our popular dramatists ; and, therefore, much amusement may be 
expected to be derived from it. Also, as we have already stated, a 
new musical piece is to be produced, and at the same time with the 
above. This shews a most energetic and praise-worthy spirit in the 
Manager ; and the Public cannot but appreciate such exertion for 
their amusement. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



Davis's Amphitheatre,— .Last night this Theatre was crowded in 
every part to witness the performances of The Battle of Waterloo, 
and the new grand melo-drama of Der Freischntz, which has been 
produced with all possible splendour, and was received by the audience 
with every demonstration of satisfaction. It would be superfluous to 
say more than that the considerable expense to which the proprietois 
have gone, and their exertions to amuse the public, must ensure their 
success. The actors in the latter piece deserve the utmost credit. — 
Mr. Gomersal personated Caspar with considerable effect. 

Brighton Theatre. — Mr. Dowton and Mr. T. Cooke have both 
finished their engagements, — the former on Saturday last, when the 
School for Scandal, and Barnaby Brittle, were performed for his be- 
nefit. Mrs. Orger is one of the very best Lady Teazles we have ever 
seen upon this stage, and we are surprise 1 that the London Managers 
do not cast her into more important pp. its. In the afterpiece, Rus- 
sell's Jeremy was irresistably comic, and J\Irs. Brittle was done to 
the life by Mrs. Orger. On Monday the Devils Bridge and the 
Sleeping Draught were performed for t he benefit of Mr. T. Cooke. — 
We never heard him in such good voice as on this occasion ; his 
"' Fancy' a Sketch," was exquisite, and was rapturously encored ; and 
he also sang with great taste and feeling " Behold in his soft expres- 
sive face," and the duct with Miss Stafford of " My early day." — 
Mrs. Orger played Lauretta with much archness and vivacity, and 
sang in a very pleasing manner " Why what can a poor maiden do." 
The Floating Beacon, which has been in preparation for a consider- 
able time, was produced on Tuesday nigrit with new scenery, &c. — 
This evening Mr. Philipps and Miss Harvey, from the English Opera 
House, make their debut. 

Mr. Vandenhoff, it appears, is engaged at the Edinburgh Theatre, 
at a salary of ten guineas per week. The announcement of this en- 
gagement to the Edinburgh audience was received with thunders of 
applause. 

Mr. Charles Kemble, we understand, is gone to Germany, not 
only to obtain some original Opeias of Weber; but to induce him to 
visit this country, and aid in the production of his musical com- 
positions. 

Birmingham Theatre. — Aug. 30. — Mr. Bunn played, for the first 
time, the Duke of Gloster, and Mr. Warde the Earl of Richmond, 
Lady Anne, by Miss Jar man ; and the ** Dashing White Serjeant" 
was sung by Mrs. Waylett. The Hypocrite has been performed 
here, Doctor Cantwell, by Mr. Warde, and Jlfaw-worm, by Mr. 
Shuter. 

It is reported that Miss Foote, of Covent Garden Theatre, is to 
be married on Monday next, to Mr. Maine, of Burderop Pa ik, Wilts ; 
a gentleman who has lately come into the possession of a large fortune.

" Nothing extenuate ner set down aught in malice." 

A*o. 862 Friday, Sept. 3, 182i. Price Id. 



Thb Benefit of Miss Stephens, last night, at this Theatre, was 
attended by an elegant, and, considering the extreme heat of the wea- 
ther, a numerous audience. It is truly delightful to see the ornaments 
of the stage thus supported. Miss Stephens sang with surpassing 
sweetness and brilliancy the tine music allotted to her character in 
J)er Fr-jischutz ; and frequent bursts of delight almost interrupted 
the effect of her songs. Subsequently, she appeared as Susanna, in 
the Opera of The Marriage of Figaro, in which her naivete and 
charming vocal powers were displayed to the greatest advantage. Her 
voice is heard to much advantage in this Theatre— the most delicate 
tones, even her melodious whispers are heard distinctly, and. therefore, 
the fullest enjoyment of her songs is the consequence. We under- 
stand Miss Stephens is about to go into the country, to fulfill her en- 
gagements at some great Musical Festivals, and next winter season 
will be found at Drury. Till then, we bid her adieu ; and thank her 
for the moments of pleasure we have derived from her vocal exertions. 
Miss Povey sang in Dcr Freischutz, and also as the Countess, in 
The Marriage of Figaro, with her wonted talent, and obtained con- 
siderable applause. Mr. Braham in the first piece, gave al! his songs 
in that powerful and beautiful style which ever distinguishes him. — 
The characters of the Count, Figaro, and Antonio, the gardener, 
were very well sustained by Messrs. Wrench, Pearman, and I3art- 
ley : but the roguish Page was acted to the life by Miss Kelly. 

This evening two new Pieces, and the first appearance this season, 
of that admirable humorist, Mr. Mathews, form a most uncommon 
attraction. 



Jjjap^niar&et €hcattc. 

The Hypocrite, Killing no Murder, and The Two Pages of Fre~ 
derick the Great, were the performances of last night, and attracted 
a numerous and genteel audience. The acting in all was excellent, 
and we hardly ever saw more gratification produced. Mr. Farren, 
Mr. Liston, and Mrs. Chatterley, in the Comedy, received much 
applause. The vivacious and ever good-humored Harley, united 
with Mr. Liston in the following Farce, to create shouts of laughtej . 
and Mis3 Love and Madame Veneris* assumed the characters of the 
Pages with the most engaging air in the woild. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Tho Surrey Theatre, and Sadler's Wells, have both had their 
usual share of patronage this week, the amusements being well worth 
the attention of the public. 

Davis's Amphitheatre continues to be most specially favored. — 
Much money must have been made there this season. 

Cobouro. — A most ridiculous drama, called " George the Third, 
the Father of his People," has been produced here. 

Ramsgate. — Aug. 31. — We have a great variety of amusements. — * 
At the Marine Library there is a promenade and concert every night, 
at which Miss Dunn of Covent Garden Theatre sings. 

Brighton Theatre. — Sept. 2. — The Comedy of Pride shall have 
a Fall, was acted on Saturday nigtrt. On Tuesday, The Critic, Puff, 
by Mr. Russell. — The new Play of Charles the Second, will shortly 
be produced. Miss I. Patox has closed her engagement here, when 
she appeared as Lady Teazle, in The School for Sca?idal. 

Vauxhall. — This is the last night of one of the most brilliant sea- 
sons the Proprietors have had since their commencement. The un- 
common exertions which they have made to gratify the Public merited 
the patronage they have received. The Gala to-night includes every 
point of attraction of previous evenings. 

Miss Paton, we are happy to hear, has recovered, and may be ex- 
pected to appear very soon at the English Opera. She has entered 
into a new engagement for four years with the Managers of Covent 
Garden Theatre. 

A Morning Paper says — " There is no truth whatever in the report 
that one of the Honourable Members for Warehem, is likely to lead 
Miss Chester to the hymeneal altar/' 

Mr. W. H. Williams, of Drury Lane Theatre, had his Benefit at 
the Windsor Theatre, on Tuesday evening, on which occasion Miss 
Tunstall, Miss Withan, and Master Longhurst, came from Vaux-

faction to an overflowing audience. 

The Dublin theatre closed for the season on Monday evening last, 
with the performance of Brutus. Mr. Abbott, of Covent-garden 
theatre, is to be the manager of Crow-street for the ensuing season.

<£ngli£t) <©pcra^ou£?. 

Last night was a most prolific one in regard to novelty. We were 
presented with two new pieces, and to heighten the attraction, Mr. 
Mathews appeared for the first time this season. The first piece was 
entitled " Jonathan in Engla?id } " and, we understand, is from the 
entertaining pen of Mr. Peake." The object of this Farce is to afford 
Mr. Mathews an opportunity of presenting a moie extended repre- 
sentation of the peculiarities of one of his odd characters, Mr. Jo- 
nathan W. Doubikins, whieh he had introduced into his late perform- 
ance of " A Trip to America." This character offered a good fund 
of entertainment, of which Mr. Peake has taken full advantage. — 
JUr. Jonathan W. is brought from " the land of liberty" to England, 
He lands at Liverpool, where his native prejudices and his Yankee 
eockneyism are first drawn foith. Thence he comes to London whore 
some cross purposes place him in several ludicrous situations, which 
terminate in due explanation, and" a considerable particular quantity" 
of genuine laughter. There are, of course, some other characters 
introduced to connect the business : and amongst these, Mr. Keelky, 
as a Postillion, and Mr. Hartley, as a feast-loving Alderman, were 
very amusing. Mr. S lo man represented Doubikin's Nigger, Agamem- 
non, extremely well. Mr. Broadhurst and Miss Holdaway sang 
pleasingly. This little piece met decided success, although there were 
persons who evidently came prepared to oppose it. 

Afterwards a new Operatic Entertainment was produced, entitled 
The Frozen Lake. This is a very pretty and interesting piece, and 
was received throughout, and at the conclusion, with great applause, 
The story may be thus narrated : — 

The Grand Duke of Suabia has a lovely daughter, the Princess 
Louisa, whom he has designed to marry to the Prince de A r eifbot(rg, 
upon political grounds. The Prince, however, has more of the sol- 
dier than the lover about him, and in paying his devoirs to the Prin- 
cess, finds great relief in applying to the amiable Baroness de Rose- 
feld, lady in waiting to the Princess, for a knowledge of those arts 
of gallantry which he is called upon to exert towards the Princess : 
but it.is to very little purpose that he seeks the assistance of th£ fair 
Baroness, he can neither win the affections of the Princess, nor does 
he seem to feel much interested about her himself, beyond the politic 
eonsideration of being closely connected with the Grand Duke. At 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



court, there is a youth of the name of Count de Linsberg, who ap*- 
pears greatly interested in the Princess Louisa. This person was a 
foundling adopted by the Grand Duke, and by him ennobled. The 
Princess seems equally engaged by the Count's amiable qualities. — 
Prince de <Veubourg, in the meantime, thinks it a duty to address 
the Princess by letter, but his awkward style induces him to seek 
de Linsberg's assistance. The latter avails himself of the opportu- 
nity of making an appointment with the Princess, in her apartments 
at nighit; which it turns out he is warranted in doing, by being in fact 
privately married to her. De Linsberg departs, and leaves the note-: 
to be conveyed in a nosegay, not calculating on the Prince looking 
into it. The latter, however, does so, and thinks Linsberg has made 
the appointment for him. Each seek the Princess's chamber, one bv 
a key erroneously conveyed to the Prince, and the other by the Fro-' 
zen Lake. Some amusing and interesting situations arise out of these 
circumstances ; and the escape of Linsberg from the apartments of 
his mistress across the Frozen Lake, leads to the discovery of the 
marriage. The piece is neatlv wound-up with the Grand Duke's re- 
cognition of the marriage, and the Prince's consoling himself by a 
match with his tutoring Baroness. Miss Noel. Miss Kelly, Mr. 
Bahtley, and Mr. Pearman, did much for the piece. 

In Hit or Miss, Mr. Mathews again appeared with great applause. 
Mr. Rayner acted Jerry Blossom excellently. Mr. Power performed 
% Rouhe 0' Daisy extremely well, as did Miss Povey his sister Dolly 
O'Daisy. The whole entertainments gave such delight, that they are 
to be repeated this evening. — There was an excellent house. 



The Comedy of The Busy Body was admirably acted last night. 
Mr. Harley's Marplot was highly entertaining. Mr. W: Farren's 
Sir Francis Gripe was also a very excellent performance. Miss 
Chester, in Miranda, was charming. — Great applause was bestowed 
on th-3 whole performance by a genteel audience. 

Vauxhall closed, last night, after a most successful season. — The 
Address was spoken by Mr. Williams.

** Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. 864 Monday, Sept. 6, 1824. Price Id. 

Mr. Peake has amply succeeded in extending the humors of Jo- 
nathan W. Doubikins, and thereby has afforded to the admirable 
Mathews a further opportunity of creating infinite laughter at bis 
odd representation of this highly comic character. On Saturday 
night the piece created almost one continued broad laugh from be- 
ginning to end. The feast-loving Alderman is extremely well done 
by Mr. Bartley in look and manner. Mr. Keeley amuses much as 
the little Postillion ; and the great Postiliion, (his twin brother) was 
rendered very grotesque by the figure of Mr. Taylecre. We could 
have wished that Mr. Peake had made more of this contrast , but 
the great Postillion is very soon lost sight of. The whole of the 
Farce told very well, except the little rub about American Freedom 
and Nigger-buying, which we dare say will be softened down to meet 
the sentiments of many who think erroneously that it is unjust, For 
our part, we have read the American newspapers, and feel the pro- 
priety of the hit from the many cattle- like advertisements we have 
read respecting the poor JViggers. These advertisements are generally 
in the style of our horse bazaar announcements. Really, no portion 
of an audience should show such ignorance and squeamish ness. The 
Postillions, however, may dread a war on account of Mr. Doubikins. 
We may risk it. 

^ap^marftct €f)eatm 

The performances of Saturday night being The Hypocrite, with 
X, Y, Z, and A Roland for an Oliver, could not fail to afford the 
highest entertainment to a numerous and genteel audience. — The act-? 
ing was excellent. 

Sadler's Well has three favorite pieces, this week,in one of which, 
that little wonder, Miss Vincent, performs. 

Surrey — This evening, (first time) a terrific melo-drama, called 
Der Freischutz ; or, the Demon of the Wolfs Glen, and the Seven 
Charmed Bullets ! and the grand drama of The Burning Bridge.

and Der Freischutz ; or, the Seven Charmed Bullets, being for thfe 
Benefit of Mr. Davis, the Proprietor. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER, 



COBURG THEATRE.— " GEORGE THE THIRD." 
The John Bull of yesterday makes the following remarks on the 
improper and ridiculous representation on the Cobourg stage of the 
recently departed Monarch, and of living persons of the first note in 
the kingdom. It says : 

" We have devoted an extraordinary space in our Paper, to the 
play-bili of the Coburg Theatre, because we think such a document 
should not die the death of a common qfficthe, but on the contrary 
should be always produceable, as an answer to those who choose to 
complain of the restrictions of the press, or the curtailment of the 
liberty of the subject. 

" The performance is contemptible in the last degree; but that is 
not the point to which we call attention — the miserable actors belong- 
ing to the Coburg Theatre cannot be expected to personate nobility 
and gentry, and the failure is only ridiculout — it is to the spirit of 
this piece that we wish to attract public indignation. To see the pious 
excellent George the Third — still fresh in our hearts and memories, 
caricatured at such a place, and even profanely borne to heaven from 
its stage — to see the reigning Monarch ridiculed by a stroller, and the 
heir presumptive to the throne burlesqued by an equally miserable 
bungler, are things which we expected not to see, and which ought 
not to be seen. To justify our observations, we beg attention to the 
bill, which, for ignorance, impudence, profanation, and absurdity 
mingled, is perfectly unequalled, and deserves, as we propose to give 
it, a perpetuity of execration. It is true, the suburban play-houses 
are out of the jurisdiction of the Lord Chamberlain, but the magis- 
trates, under whose licence these people act, should surely interfere, 
to prevent violations of decency, and exhibitions of mingled falsehood 
and profligacy like the Piece in question, which is disgraceful even to 
the place at which it is exhibited." 



Glasgow Theatre. — Miss Tree concluded a most successful en- 
gagement on Saturday last, and was succeeded last night by the ce- 
lebrated Mr. Sinclair and Miss Hallande. The play was The Ca- 
binet. — Prince Orlando, by Mr. Sinclair, and Floretta, by Miss 
Hallande. Mr. Sinclair was in most excellent voice — the " Beau- 
tiful Maid/* was most rapturously encored, and '* .Wo more by sor- 
row/* called for again with excessive enthusiasm. Miss Edmiston, a 
very interesting and clever actress, dropped down in a fit, just as Mr. 
Sinclair was about to commence " Oh ! lady, ne'er will I prove false 
to thee," in consequence of which, that air was not sung : but " All's 
Well," substituted for it, at a later period of the evening. Miss 
Edjmiston's re-appearance elicited bursts of applause from an audience 
that had previously manifested considerable sympathy.

Ao . 865 Tuesday, S ept. 7, 1824. Priee hi. 

* Our article respecting the performance of The Frozen Lake, on 
Saturday night, was accidentally omitted yesterday ; and we shall 
now content ourselves with reporting the representation of last night, 
which was the third of the two new pieces. There is something: very 
pleasing ahout The Frozen Lake — the story is exceedingly simple, 
hut heing very dramatically carried on, and ably acted, and the music 
hy Mr. Reeve and mi. "Watson, heing very appropriate, the whole- 
proves agreeable. Miss Noel certainly improves — there are some of 
her tones that have a peculiar plaintiveitess which communicates a sen- 
sation like that we have felt amidst the romantic scenery of the High- 
lands of Scotland, when the well-timed Voice of a female cottager has 
risen to our mountain station from the dell beneath. Cockney ears 
may not enter into our associations, and may laugh at them ; hut still 
we feel there is a string of nature's melody touched by this young 
ladv — it is a wild note, that reminds us of the days of bovish freedom 
when all the world appeared to us like a wide romance. We do wish, 
sincerely wish, that Miss Noel would closely adhere to the pathetic 
and simple style — her forte evidently lies in that direction — bravura, 
and all the difficulties of science she may attempt, but she will never 
effect sufficient in that line of song to compensate for the abandon- 
ment of pure unadorned melody, by which she can with ease reach 
the feelings, and therefore command the warmest approbation. This 
young lady has been said to sing somewhat in the style of Alias M. 
Tree, and so she does : but there is a great difference between them 
in point of tone. Each, however, can communicate great pathos to 
their song, although Miss Tree is at present the most cultivated of 
the two. Mr. Pearman acted well, and saug in a very pleasing man- 
ner. Miss Kelly represents the character of the Baroness de Rose^ 
feld with great felicity of manner, giving her lessons of gallantry and 
propriety to the camp-struck Prince, in a humorous yet delicate style 
that could not but produce laughter. Mr. Wrench makes hit High- 
ness the Prince de Neubourg, a little too inelegant, yet he is highly 
comic bv means of his bustling humor. The Grand Duk* could not 
have a better representative than Mr. Bartley, and Mr. Kexley 
acted the ambitious little Gardner very laughably. 

The adventures in England of Mr. Jonathan W. DoubUdns, fol- 
lewed, and afforded the highest amusement, by dint of Mr. Mathews'* 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



excellent representation of the Yankee. — Me was encored in one of 
his songs. By the bye, in our article of yesterday regarding this 
Theatre, the reader will be pleased to take notice that in the con- 
cluding passage the word postillions was printed instead of politicians. 
The word ajfiche in the same number, was also misprinted ajjicthe. — 
In Hit or Jtfiss, Mr. Mathews was encored in his two sporting songs. 
The house overflowed. 



The Africans, Intrigue, and Love, Law, and Physic, were the 
performances of last night. The first piece was ably acted in the 
principal characters. Mr. Cooper, as Sclico, and Mrs. Chatterley^ 
as Berissa, supported the chief interest in a powerful manner. The 
humor was in Mr. Liston's hands, and his Mug was as comic as 
ever. He was encored " Won't ye, icon't ye.'* In Intrigue, Mr. 
Harley and Madame Vestris were vehemently encored in the duct 
of " When a little Farm we keep," — There was a good house. . 

Surrey Theatre. — A new melo-drama, called Der Freischutz ; 
or, the Demon of the Wolf's Glen and the Seven Charmed Bullets ! 
was produced here for the first time last night. The scenery was 
beautiful. — The Incantation-sccne was really introduced in a style of 
surpassing splendour. Owls flapping their wings — serpents hissing in 
the air — shadows moving, and every concomitant of terror and dia- 
bolism were summoned into requisition to give energy and effect to 
this awful and impressive scene. It was given out for repetition 
amidst great applause. — The house was crowded to excess. 

Mr. Davis had his Benefit last night at the Amphitheatre, which 
was excellently attended. The Battle of Waterloo, with Monsieur 
Ducrow's celebrated Horsemanship, and Der FreUchutz were the 
entertainments. During Mr. Ducrow's wonderful Feats, his horse 
slackened his pace, and he fell with considerable force on his back : 
the audience manifested considerable uneasiness, but fortunately he 
was not severely hurt. 

Among the forthcoming novelties at the Olympic, is a parodied 
piece on Frankenstein, from the pen of Mr. Omera.

^ap^itiarhct Ztymttt. 

There was a very crowded house here last night to see Of Age 
To-morrow, Sweethearts and Wives, and the revived Comedy of 
Teaztng made Easy. The two former pieces excited great mirth, 
and were excellently acted. XV c have never mentioned Mr. Rarren's 
performance of stdmiral Franklin, in Sweethearts and Wives ; but it 
amply merits notice for great truth of colouring — both as respects 
humor and feeling. The scene between him and Miss Chester, who 
plays Eugenia charmingly, was admirably represented, and was 
highly appreciated by the audience. Indeed, every character in this 
operatic piece is ably sustained, and the usual broad laugh attended 
Mr. Lisrox in his fascinating part of Billy Lackaday. His melan- 
choly ditty was encored amidst shouts of laughter. Madame Yes- 
tris was likewise encored in '* Why are you wandering" which she 
gave with great richness of tone. 

Teazing made Easy had not been acted for the last three years.—? 
On the death of Mr. Tokely, who so comically represented Peter 
Pastoral, there was no person at this theatre at all calculated to fill 
the character ; and, also, there was not a fit representative for Gam- 
mon, which part was written for and originally filled by Mr. Mathews. 
These circumstances contributed to its being laid aside. It is a piece 
that is generally likely to amuse when well acted. Its author is un- 
derstood always to have wrote in a hurry, and was more attentive to 
vivacity of dialogue than any great perfection in the conduct of his 
pieces. He did not appear to wield the pen with any high ambition, 
for dramatic fame from the light three-act comedies produced here for 
several seasons, but his object seemed to be merely to present some 
lively scenes in character with the usual representations of" the Little 
Theatre." He was fortunate in having Tokely to fill two of the most 
amusing characters he has sketched. The peculiar figure and man- 
ner of the departed performer were exactly suited to Crockery anil 
Peter Pastoral ; and it was a resemblence to him in some respects, 
no doubt, that suggested the idea of Mr. Wilkinson playing the latter 
character last night. In point of figure Mr. W. is not unlike Tokely, 
but his features, and his style are quite different. Mr. VVilkinsun's 
humor is of a much too quiet nature — he curbs himself too much; 
and, therefore, does not always reach the point that might bs ex- 
petted. However, he represented Peter with considerable sue&ess, 



fHE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



and created much laughter by his rural enthusiasm, even in his admi- 
ration of the view adorned by the pig-stye and the smoking dunghill— 
7 how werey rural." Mr. Harley, as Gammon, was highly enter- 
taining. He made many points, and altogether gave a most complete 
picture of the active impudent Barrister's clerk. The other charac- 
ters were very well sustained. Mrs. T. Hill, as Miss Teazer, was as 
like a boarding-school young lady reduced a to hedge ale-house-keep- 
er's daughter as could well be conceived ; and Mrs. Gibbs made Miss 
Manley as doubtful in point of sex as manners could effect. The 
whole went off very pleasantly. 



A crowded audience again were delighted by the performances 
which are to be represented also, this evening. The new musical drama, 
and Jonathan's Adventures, are likely to have the run of the season. 

Miss Paton and Mr. Pearman will, to-morrow, for the first time, 
sustain the characters of Agnes and Rodolph in Der Freischutz. 

Mr. Abbott, late of Covent Garden Theatre, the new Lessee of 
the Dublin Theatre, under Mr. H. Harris, is now in London, and is 
reported to have engaged some of the most brilliant Metropolitan 
Stars, for the opening of his first campaign. 

The Bristol Theatre, under the management of the elder MACREAny* 
last week presented a considerable portion of novelty and talent, in 
the accession of not less than five London actors of acknowledged 
ability : — Messrs. Archer, Thompson, Gattie, Ellar, and Paulo. 
The Plays for the week were Pizarro, Jane Shore, The Castle Spec- 
tre, The Stranger, and The Point of Honour : the three first named 
gentlemen performing the principal characters. A Pantomime fol- 
lowed, which served to display the graceful and unrivalled agility of 
Ellar, as Harlequin, and the broad humor aud numerous disastors 
of Paulo, as Clown, in the personation of which motley hero he is 
considered second only to the celebrated Grimaldi himself. 

That delightful actress and charming vocalist, Miss M. Tree, ap- 
peared at the Manchester Theatre on Saturday, in her favorite cha- 
racter of Clari, in The Maid of Milan, and deservedly obtained the 
highest applause of an admiring audience. She was ably supported 
by Mr. Blanchard, who sustained the part of Rolamo in the most 
pathetic and effective style. The afterpiece was The Libertine. — 
Zerlina was, of course, played by Miss Tree, with all her wonted 
excellence. 

Miss Foote — We understand that the rumoured marriage of this 
lady with Mr. Haines is put off sine die.

A numerous Slid elegant audience attended this Theatre last night, 
to witness its popular round of entertainments. The new drama of 
r rhe Frozen Lake possesses considerable interest, from its striking 
situations and variety of incidents. It was performed with great 
ability. Miss Kully, Mr. Wrench, Mr. Bartley, &c. particularly 
distinguished themselves in their respective parts. — The piece was 
much applauded throughout. Mr. Mathews, as the renowned Jo- 
nathan W. Donbikins, " poked" his fun and drollery in all, in his 
usual " genuine" style, to the audience's hearty enjoyment, and con- 
cluded the amusements of the evening as Dick Cypher, hi which he was 
loudly applauded, and encored in his Sporting Songs. 

Miss Paton was announced to appear here this evening in the part 
of Agnes, in the new Opera of Der Freischuiz, amidst general ap- 
probation. 

We understand that the two highly successful new pieces hero of 
The Frozen Lake, and Jonathan in England, are to be acted four 
times a week, and I)cr FreiscJiutuz, on the Thursdays and Salur- 
days. — A new musical Farce is in rehearsal. 

©ap^iiarftrt -€$eatrc» 

That mirth-creating Farce, X, Y, Z, was the first on the list of 
pieces here last night Mr. Listom's JVcddy Bray is, almost without 
exception, the most laughable of his performances. His scenes with 
Mrs. Mouscr at the coffee-house, and with Dora Mitmwell, are of a 
nature to move the muscles of the most austere. This Farce can only be. 
acted where Mr.LisTox is to be found ; and thus, although, it has been 
long in the possession of the Proprietors of Covent Garden Theatre, 
by purchase, it may be said to be the property of this comic gentle- 
man, who, wherever he acts, alone confers the power of its being re- 
presented. M r.. Ha rle y, in Roscius Alldross, was highly entertain- 
ing ; he contrives always to make every secondary character he as- 
sumes of more importance than was calculated. Thus, last night, he 
shared very considerably with Mr. Lisxox, in creating the laughter 
and applause bestowed on X, Y, Z. 

The Marriage of Figaro followed, in which Madame Vestris ap- 
peared as Susanna. Her charming powers of voice,, and arch style 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



of acting, commanded that applause which was so generally and warmly 
bestowed. With fine qualities of voice, she is not, however, equal te 
her predecessor in the character, Miss Patox. Madame Vestrib is 
never so much admired as in songs where but little scientific ornament 
is required : her full rich tones are best suited to simple melody or 
playful cadence. Her present attempt was in many instances highly 
delightful. 

In the last piece, Matrimony, Mr. VrNiNG and Mrs, Chatterley 
supported the characters of the husband and wife with excellent 
effect. — A numerous and fashionable audience retired greatly enter- 
tained. 

Mr. W. Farren is to appear in the character of Lord Ogleby, in 
The Clandestine Marriage on Saturday. 

A new Farce, in two acts, entitled 'Twould Puzzle a Conjuror! 
will be produced on Saturday next. It is said Mr. John Poole is the 
author. 

Drurv Lane Theatre. — The above .theatre is undergoing con- 
siderable repairs, and, according to report, from the extensive alter- 
ations and embellishments which will take place, the public may ex- 
pect to see almost a new theatre by the commencement of the season. 
No less than 20 additional carpenters were set to work in the theatre, 
yesterday, and the number of artists employed to exercise their ge- 
nius for the amusement of the public is comparatively as great. — 
British Press. 

Surrey. — This Theatre was numerously attended last night, to 
see D'er Freischutz and The Burning Bridge, which were excellently 
acted. At the commencement of the last piece an apology was made 
for Mr. RowBOTHAai, who was taken suddenly ill.— Mr. Young under- 
took his character, and performed it very well. 

Davis's Amphitheatre. — The Battle of Waterloo, and Der Frei- 
schutz, continue to attract greatly. 

Sadler's Wells. — The performances here are Harlequin Faggot 
Maker, Disguises, and Abdellac the Terrific, which are calculated 
to please in the highest degree.

The first appearance hero of Miss Paton naturally attracted a nu- 
merous audience, who were desirous to hear her execute Weber's fine 
music. Following Miss Stephens in the character of Jlgnes, in Uer 
Freischutz, it might be supposed that we would indulge in a critical 
contrast of the several powers of these delightful vocalists : hut such 
is not our intention, because it is a very useless and ungracious task 
to draw contrasts ; but particularly so where the difference of style is 
so great, as to give each a due and equal weight with persons of difter- 
eut tastes. Miss Paton's forte is in the execution of difficult and 
brilliant passages, and in the sce?ia she shone forth with uncommon 
lustre in many of its most elaborate points. In the long and difficult 
song of " Before my eyes beheld him," she gave striking exemplifica- 
tions of this excellence, which were felt and duly appreciated by the 
audience. The Rodolph of Mr. Pearman was also a most respectable 
performance ; and though he could not enter the lists as a competitor 
with him who is admitted to reign in the musical world without a ri- 
val, the propriety of his action, the advantages of his appearance, 
and his general professional powers, made h'im an excellent represen- 
tative of the German forester. The duet between him and Agnes t 
immediately before the trial shot, was executed with great beauty and 
effect, and was loudly and deservedly applauded. The Opera seems 
still to maintain that general interest, and to command that attention, 
which it first excited. The musical drama of The Frozen Lake fol- 
lowed. 



^ap^matftct Cjfjeatrc. 

•Married and Single, Sweethearts and Wives, and No Song no 
Supper, were the performances of last night. In the first piece Mr. 
W, Farren, Mr. Cooper, Mr. West, and Mr. Vining, were highly 
amusing, as were also Mrs. Glover and Mrs. C. Jones, as Mrs, 
Bicker ton, and Mrs. Shatterly. Sweethearts and Wives, was acted 
in its usual excellent manner, and was received throughout with great 
applause. In the latter piece a Miss Parry made her first appear- 
ance, in the character of Margaretta, and was received with con- 
liderahle approbation. Mr. Harlev, as Robin, and Mr. Wilkinson, 
as Endluf, were highly amusing. — The houie was full. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



The Surrey, Sadler's Wells, and Davis's Amphitheatre, were 
well attended last night. 

Mr. Young, the admirable tragedian, arrived in town on Wednes- 
day, from Paris. 

The frequenters of the upper galleries in Dublin and London Thea- 
tres are called the Gods $ in Paris the upper regions is termed le 
Paradis. 

The Comedy of The Clandestine Marriage is to be performed at 
the Haymarket Theatre to-morrow, with Mr. W. Farrex, as Lord 
Ogleby, and Miss Chester, as Fanny. 

Theatricals. — In a small town on the south coast of Fife, an iti~ 
nerant band of players have boon performing for the last ten days.—- 
Finding their success not yory ^eat, they resolved to decamp ; in 
order to obtain a full house on the last night of acting (which was the 
tragedy of Macbeth'), they caused the bellman, who went through the 
town to announce the play, to state, that those who were not pleased 
with the performance, would get back their money after it was over. 
The bellman, however, was a bit of a wag, for after calling out what 
we have stated, in an audible voice, he added, in an under tone, by 
way of caution to his fellow-citizens, " But, Sirs, it's ill takin' aits 
frae geese." — Edinburgh Courant. 

Brighton Theatre. — Mrs. Orger took her benefit, and closed her 
engagement on Monday night, with the Comedy of Jl Bold Stroke for 
a Husband, in which she performed the part of Olivia in her usual ad- 
mirable manner. Miss Poole and Miss Parrock also played delight- 
fully, as Victoria and Marcellina. P, Q, with the burlesque of Qua- 
drupeds, followed. In the latter, Mr. J. Reeve played Abrahamades 
with great spirit, and introduced imitations of Kean and Macready, 
that were much applauded. Burlesque is evidently this actor's forte, 
and we shall hope to see pieces of this kind repeated. Mrs. Orger 
performed the part of Titilinda very excellently, and we are sorry to 
have lost so good an actress. The Opera of The English Fleet, and 
Humfustian, were performed last night, for the benefit of Mr. Foster, 
Mr. T. Cooke performing the part of Valentine. The celebrated 
Opera of Der Freischutz is getting up here with all its original splen- 
dour, and will be under the superintendance of Mr. T. Cooke, of the 
Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, who will perform in the piece. The 
Band will be led by Mr. Mountain, late leader at the Theatre jSoyal, 
Coyent Garden, and English Opera House.

Thk interesting performance of The Frozen Lake, and of Mr, 
Mathews, as Jonathan in England, and as Dick Cypher, gave am- 
ple entertainment last night, to an overflowing audience. The manager 
"of this pleasant Theatre has shewn his power to hit the public taste, 
or attract their curiosity, by the good quality and varied nature of 
his representations. The pieces of last evening were of a light and 
highly comic character : those of to-night combine musical excellence, 
and powerful interest. Miss Patox, who appears for the- second time 
as Agnes, in Dcr Frcischutz, communicates the finest effect to some 
parts of the music allotted to her ; particularly to the sound which is 
sung hi the chamber opening to the moon-light view. We beg to draw 
particular attention to the brilliant manner in which she executes some 
of the passages in this difficult song. Mr. Pearman, it will be seen, 
has Mr. Braham's late character, and he supports it in a highly cre- 
ditable manner. 

In The Frozen Lake, Miss Carr has taken Miss Noel's character, 
in consequence, we are sorry to say, of the indisposition of the latter. 
Miss Carr does not sing; but sustains the part very agreeably. 



Three of the most amusing pieces were excellently acted here last: 
night, viz. The Young Quaker, Intrigue, and Two Strings to your 
Bow. We have hardly ever entered this theatre in the midst of the 
performances, without the Ha ! ha ! ha's ! of the audience meeting our 
ears as we hastily ascended to our seat. And rarely have we passed the 
threshold of the box without feeling our physiognomy considerably 
shortened, and a violent inclination come upon us to join chorus with 
those whose lungs were crowing at the humors of the passing scene. 
Except at the late representation of that black affair, The Africans, 
(Jlr.JIIug not being visible) we know of no piece being performed 
here this season, which has not tended to invigorate existence by pro- 
moting that flow of spirits so necessary to health. We once before 
took the liberty of suggesting to the physicians to prescribe to their 
nervous and hypochondriacal patients a dose or two of " the Little 
Theatre" in the Havmarket ; and as we find the medicine still retains 
its virtues, we again intreat the attention thereto of the learned 
faculty. Madame Vestkis last night suffered under a severe cold,—

Newcastle Theatre. — On Friday evening, being the last night of 
performance under the present management, and for the benefit of 
Mr. De Camp, the new Comedy of Charles the Second was represented 
by desire and under the patronage of Col. Teesdale, and the officers 
of the 1st Dragoon Guards. The characters of King Charles, Ror 
Chester, Captain Copp, and Mary, were sustained by Messrs. De 
Camp, Carter, Butler, and Mrs. Brudexell. — After the Play, Mr. 
De Camp stepped forward, as manager, and delivered his Farewell 
Address ; which intimated, that from the great losses he had met 
with, it would be impossible for him to continue in the management 
of the theatre. IVlr. De Camp had not withdrawn mors than a minute 
or two, when he returned, and observed, " J must again trespass on 
your indulgence, ladies and gentleman. It was with great regret, from 
the many kindnesses you have shewn me, that I took my parting leave 
of you — but at the moment I left the stage, an act the most black, 
unmanly, and treacherous I ever experienced in my life, was committed 
towards me. I have this instant been arrested, and I shall therefore 
be under the painful necessity of disappointing you, by not appearing 
in the afterpiece agreeably to the announcement. T am unable to per- 
form, because I am in custody. You will be anxious so know at whose 
suit, and I shall not hesitate to mention to you the names of the per- 
sons who have treated me in this manner. The person who has made 
the arrest is Mr. Armstrong, the solicitor, and it is at the suit of 
Mr. Clayton, the timber merchant. Yet I am thus shamefully treated, 
arrested at a moment when I am quite unprepared to offer bail, though 
I was to be met with at any hour of the day. I saw this very Mr. 
Armstrong the day before yesterday, and he then faithfully promised 
me, as a man and as a gentleman, that he would be satisfied if the 
debt was paid by the first of November. Ladies and Gentleman, I 
have to apologise to you for thus troubling you, but I could not avoid 
it from the circumstances in which I was placed." — (A peal of groans 
then followed. — Hisses loud and long, from all parts of the house, 
were directed against the persons who had given rise to these remarks 
from Mi. De Camp.) J. G. Clarke, Esq. stepped out from the boxes, 
and with a noble spirit of generosity released the manager from his 
dilemma by giving the bailiff his word that he would see the money 
paid. On the following morning- the debt, which, we understand, was 
under £30. was discharged by the same gentleman. Mr. Butler, 
hefore the interlude of Three Weeks after Marriage, commenced, 
stepped forward and said, " Ladies and Gentlemen, all has been set- 
tled, and the performances will proceed to your entire satisfaction." 
Ob Mr. De Camp's appearance in Sweethearts and Wives, which con- 
cluded the evening's entertainments, he was received with great and 
long continued applause. He came forward and observed, that he 
had been relieved from his embarrassed situation by the kindness and 
generosity of his friends, who had crowded round him with their offers 
•f assistance. "

On Saturday night, that extraordinary drama of interest and fin© 
music, Der Freischutz> was again presented to a most numerous au- 
dience ; and Miss Raton, for the second time, supported the character 
of JlgneSy in which she had another opportunity of displaying her 
fine voice, and that highly cultivated style which place her amongst 
our leading vocalists. On the occasion in question, she met with all 
that warmth of approbation which her professional and private qua- 
lities entitle her to. Mr. Pearmax ably executed the music allotted 
to him in the character formerly sustained by Mr. Braitam. This 
gentleman always displays a very pleasing taste in his songs, and 
therefore, although his voice does not conquer all the difficulties of 
some musical compositions, yet he gratifies in no common degree, and 
particularly in a small theatre. The Overture arid the fine ckprussf's, 
in this operatic drama, are uncommonly well executed, both by the 
iuatrumental and vocal department, and received corresponding marks 
of approbation from the audience, who likewise did not omit to reward 
in that manner the efforts of Miss Fovev, and of Mr. H. Phillips. 

In the Farce of Gretna Green, Miss Kelly and Mr. Wrench created 
the highest entertainment by their personation of Mistress Betty 
Finikin, and the Gentleman's Gentleman. 

I^a^marfect €$eatrc. 

The Comedy of The Clandestine Marriage was the first of the 
performances on Saturday evening. Mr. W. Farrex's Lord Qglehj 
was the chief attjactio» of the piece, and an admirably acted cha- 
racter it was. He first attained public notice in this part, and ever 
since has reigned triumphantly in the lordly valetudinarian, atid in all 
the other aged imbeciles of the stage. Miss Chester played Fanny 
in a most interesting manner. Mrs. Gibbs represented Miss Sterling 
rery well ; and, indeed the whole Comedy was excellently performed. 
A new Farce was afterwards pioduced under the title of ' Tivould 
Puzzle a Conjuror. This piece, which we think is taken from a French 
drama, is founded entirely on the adventure of the celebrated Czar 
Peter of Russia, who intent on promoting the naval greatness of his 
country, came in disguise, and worked as a common ship-carpenter in 
the Dock Yard of Sardam in Holland. The circumstance, coming 
to the knowledge of the Dutch, the German, and French governments, 
each sends an ambassador with secret instructions to discover the 
Monarch, and endeavour to form a treaty offensive and defensive with 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



him, in opposition to the views of the other powers. The humor and 
puzzling part of the affair arises out of the difficulty of discover- 
ing Peter. For it happens there are many Peters in the dock-yard ; 
and Mynheer Van Dunder, the burgomaster of Sardam, is a person 
of very confused intellect, and moreover cannot read the instructions 
sent him. At length it is discovered there are but two foreign Peters, 
one of whom, of course, is the Czar, known a9 Peter Micheloff, or 
some such name, and the other Peter Stanmitz, a deserter from a 
Muscovite regiment. Many cross purposes, obscurities, and comical 
blunders arise to perplex the poor Burgomaster, who is at last con- 
vinced that Peter Stanmitz is the Czar ; and hence some amusing si- 
tuations arise, until all the Ambassadors and the wise Van Dunder 
are undeceived by the Czar himself. This Farce was pleasantly acted, 
particularly by Mr. Listox, Mr. Harlev, and Mr. Cooper, who had 
the chief business in their keeping, and the audience, which was one 
of the most elegant and crowded of the season, gave it their fial of 
approbation. It struck us, however, that the Czar's final discovery 
of himself was not well accounted for, after his anxiety and alarm for 
his escape through the embargo which had been laid on the shipping 
of the Port. 

Mr. Ducrow takes his Benefit this evening at the Amphitheatre. 

It is rumoured that the English Opera-House will be appropriated 
next winter to performances entirely foreign to its original purposes. 
In other words, it is conjectured that Italian Operas will take place 
in that Theatre twice a week during the season, and that the Italian 
company will perform on alternate nights with Mr. Mathews. 

-Miss Isabella Paton took her benefit at Tunbiidge Wells Theatre, 
on Friday se'night, as Lady Teazle, the first time. — This young lady 
had appeared at Drury Lane, for the last two weeks of the season, 
chiefly in Mrs. Jordan's characters, with, perhaps, more success than 
has been obtained since the time of that eminent performer, especially 
considering the lateness of the season. — With the exception of small 
imperfections, incident to early youth, short experience, and a first 
performance of so arduous a part, Miss I. Paton's Lady Teazle fully 
justifies the high reputation which her Letitia Hardy and other cha- 
racters have justly piocured. We are inclined to agree with the Lon- 
don critics, in considering this young lady the first in our recollection 
who has possessed, in an eminent degree, the styles of both Miss Far- 
ren and Mrs. Jordan ; her gracefulness and animation in the former, 
and her rich and original humor in the latter being equally above or- 
dinary pretensions — Brighton Herald. 

Mr. Kean is engaged to perform at Limrick for a £cw nights.-—

The Comic Piece of Blue Devils, with the Operatic Comedy of 
Sweethearts and Wives, and the second performance of the new Farce 
of *T would Puzzle a Conjuror, attracted a crowded attendance to 
this theatre last night.— The acting in the latter piece is excellent, 
particularly by Mr. Cooter, Mr. Liston, Mr. Harley, and Mrs. 
Chatterley, and, we have no doubt, it will have a long run. 



This Theatre was crowded in all parts last night, to sec The Fro- 
zen Lake, Jonathan in England, and Hit or Jtfiss ! — Mr. Wrrnch, 
and Miss Kelly, were highly amusing in the first pieee ; Mr. Pear- 
man and Miss Noel sang delightfully. Mr. Mathews, as Jonathan 
TV. Doubihins, kept the audience in continual laughter. Hit or Jtfiss 
followed, and was well performed. 



Olympic Theatre. — The greatest preparations are making for the 
opening of this compact and elegant '* little box," which, we hear, is 
fixed for Saturday, the 2nd of October. We were favored the other 
day with a peep at the interior, and were much gratified with the many 
improvements already made ; the company engaged are, we under- 
stand, both numerous and talented; many names were mentioned to 
hb of long established celebrity. The management, we are glad to 
hear, remain under the able arrangement of our old friend, Vining, 
whose capabilities as manager and actor are well known. The liberal- 
ity of Mr. Frampton, the proprietor, is conspicuous, in endeavoring 
to promote, at great expense and exertion, the comfort and conve- 
nience of his patrons. — We heartily wish him a successful season. 

Surrey. — Der Freischutz, and The Burning Bridge, were again 
repeated last night to a numerous audience. 

Sadler's Wells. — Two new pieces were produced here last night, 
which met with decided success.

which was crowded. The Battle of Waterloo, with Mons. Oucrow's 
celebrated Horsemanship, the Chinese Cavalry, and the Deft Jlfeg, 
were the entertainments, which met with thunders of applause.

Mr. Macready is to superintend the Tragedies which are to he 
acted at Dniry Lane Theatre, in the room of Mr Buxx, who has re- 
tired from the management. 

Vox Wep.er. — The most popular German Vocal Composer now liv- 
ing is decidedly Carl Maria Von Weber. The Opera of Dcr Frei- 
schutz has proved a prize to every German theatrical manager from 
Hamburgh to Vienna. To the directors of the Berlin theatre it is 
said to have produced above 30,000 dollars, having been performed 
upwards of fifty times in 18 months. Weber was born at Eaton, ia 
Ilolstcin, in 1783. He studied in early youth the piano, at Munich, 
under J. N. Kalchcr, and soon after received letters in composition 
from Michael Haydn, at Saltzburglu At eleven years of age he was 
so far advanced in the science, that he not -only performed in public, 
hut composed short figure movements for four voices. In 1803, he 
went to Vienna, where he completed his musical education under the 
guidance of the two Haydns, Solieri, and Beethoven. In 1813, he 
was appointed composer to the National Theatre at Prague. Besides 
his " Frdsdiutz,"' Weber has composed the " Prcxiosa," a much 
admired Opera ; also " Abul Hassan'' which is said to contain some 
beautiful music, especially a Polacca, with violoncello accompaniments, 
and several other Operas, 

Miss Macauley attracted much company last week to the Margate 
Theatre. She played jJdelgitha, Isabella, and Lady Rodolpha Lu?n- 
berconrt with great applause. 

The Liverpool theatre has this season been supported by the talents 
of Mr. C. Kemble, Mr. Connor, Mr. Meadows, Mr. Browne, Mr. 
Knight, Mr. Jones, Mr. Dowton, and Mr. Blanehard, Mrs. Ogilvie, 
Mrs. Butm, JMcsdames L. Kelly, M. Hammersley, Clara Fisher. 
Smithson, Fordo, and M. Tree. Mr. Blanehard, Mr. Hunt, and 
Miss M. Tree are now performing there. Miss M. Tree's health is ia 
so delicate a state as not to admit of her performing in more than one 
piece of an evening. On Wednesday last an apology was made for 
her non-appearance in the. part of Ro>dva, in the Barber of Seville. 
She had previously played Mary, in Cfmrles the Second, and showed 
evident signs or indisposition. Her professional exertions muct have 
injured her health. It is much to be lamented that she suffers her in- 
gagements in different and distant parts of the kingdom so rapidly to 
succeed each other as not to allow her sufficient time to recover her 
fatigue of traveling and constant performing. The Theatre has been in 
general well attended, and the benefits of the performers have been 
very productive. Mr. Terry is announced for Sir Pertinax this even- 
ing. Mr. M'Crcatlv and Miss Lacv are also mentioned as being in the 
catalogue of stars yet to appear.

The Comedy of The Hypocrite was again presented last night, and 
attracted a very numerous audience. The performance of the cha- 
racter of Doctor Cantwell, by Mr. W. Farren, does credit to his ta- 
lents, because it is an able piece of acting out of his proper line.— 
The usual applause attended Mr. Listox's Maicicorm, and the other 
chief characters were excellently sustained by Mr. Ccofeii, Mrs. 
Chatterley, &c. 

The new Farce of 'Twould Puzzle a Conjuror, went off extremely 
well, and Of Age To-morroio most pleasantly concluded the enter- 
tainments of the evening. 



Those three eminently successful pieces, The Frozen Lake, Jo- 
nathan in England, and Hit or Jlliss, with its " nguf Feature," were 
performed last night to a very numerous audience, who seemed highly 
pleased with the whole of the entertainments. We were happy again 
to see Miss Noel enabled to resume her station here ; she appeared 
in her former character of the Princess in the first piece, and sang 
most sweetly. Miss Kelly was, as usual, very clever in her perform- 
ance of the Baroness, and Mr. Wrench, Mr. Pearman, Mr. Bart- 
ley, &c. ably sustained their several parts. Whilst P.Icssrs. Wrench 
and Pearman were on the stage a loud laugh burst suddenly from the 
audience, which rather discomposed those gentlemen ; they hesitated 
in their dialogue, and glanced an eye of suspicion at each other, un- 
til it was discovered that a " fair debutante** of the Feline tribe, 
had made her entree at. the wing, but being quite overcome at trie 
shouts of applause that welcomed ' her first appearance on any stage/ 
she withdrew in extreme agitation. 



Miss I.Paton, sister of the eminent vocalist, who made so success- 
ful a debut last season, is engaged by Mr. Elliston, for three years. 

Miss M. Tree, after performing during the recess in Scotland, 
where she was received with very great favour, will appear at the 
Theatres in Liverpool, Manchester, and Southampton, previously to, 
tjhe commencement of the winter campaign at the Theatre Koyal, Co- 
Tent Garden. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Covent Garden Theatre opens for the season on the 27th instant, 
and Drury Lane on the 29th. There is evident bustle and prepara- 
tion at each house, for an arduous struggle and competition. 

Mr. Rayner closed a week's engagement at York, and played Pen- 
ruddock, in The Wheel of Fortune, for his benefit. 

Mr. Charles Kemble is on his return from Germany, where he 
has engaged Weber, the celebrated German composer, to superintend 
two or three Musical Dramas, which are to be produced at Covent - 
garden Theatre. 

Garrick's First Play-Bill — When Garrick quitted Ispwich, 
where he played a tew nights in a provincial company, he repaired to 
London ; but it appears that he was unable to obtcin an engagement 
at any of the great Houses. He was then obliged to join the company 
in Goodman's-fields, who, to avoid being sent to prison as rogues and 
vagabonds, for acting without a license, presented Plays to their au- 
dience, gratis, charging them only for the Concerts. Here it was 
that the British lioscius, trembling between hope and fear, made his 
first bow as Richard the Third. The applause which he received was 
tumultous ; the public caught with admiration the brilliant sparks of 
genius which he emitted, and with their fostering hand bore him tri- 
umphantly along the current of popularity ; they placed him at the 
very head of his profession, and made him an object of wonder and 
admiration to the whole world. The following copy of the bill which 
announces his first appearance is curious : 

" Goodman's Fields, Oct. 19, 1741. — At the Theatre in Goodman's 
Fields, this day, will be performed a Concert of Vocal and Instrumen- 
tal Music, divided into two parts. — Tickets at three, two, and one 
shilling. — Places for the boxes to be taken at the Fleece Tavern, next 
the Theatre. — N. B. Between the two parts of the Concert will be 
presented an Historical Play, called the Life and Death of King Ri- 
chard III ; containing the Distresses of King Henry VI ; the artful 
acquisition of the Crown by King Richard ; the murder of young King 
Edward V. and brother in the Tower ; the landing of the Earl of 
Richmond, and the death of King Richard in the memorable Battle 
of Bosworth-rield, being the last that was fought between the Houses 
of York and Lancaster ; with other true historical passages. The 
part of King Hichard by a Gentleman,* (who never appeared on any 
Stage); King Henry, Mr. Giifard; Richmond, Mr. Marshall ; Prince 
Edward, Miss Hippesley ; Duke of York, Miss Naylor, &c. &c. — 
With an Entertainment of Dancing, &c. — To which will be added, a 
Ballad Opera, in one act, called the Virgin Unmasked. Both of 
which will be perfomed by persons gratis for diversion. — The Concer t 
to begin at six o'clock precisely."

The Comedy of The Clandestine JMarriage was acted here last 
night, to a very numerous and genteel audience. Mr. W. Faiuiek, 
as Lord Ogleby, represented to the life those infirmities which a fash- 
ionable life generally brings on a little before the sufferer is inclined to 
abandon the pleasures of the beau monde. He combined rheumatism 
and spasm with the gay fancies of the tottering Nobleman, so as to 
create much entertainment. Miss Chester was the Fanny t which 
she represented in a very engaging manner. Mrs. Gibbs, as JlJtss 
Sterling, gave a vigorous picture of the bad disposition of that lady. 
Brush, by Mr. Harley, was rendered a very amusing personage; 
and Canton, by Mr. W. West, was fairly represented. — No one ever 
played this character so well as poor Wewitzer. Mr. Williams did 
Sterling in a sound style ; and Mrs. Windsor, if it were not for her 
comely smooth face, would have been an excellent Jfrs. Heidelberg. — 
Mrs. Windsor is too tidy and nice a body, to allow us to fancy her 
for a moment a coarse and vulgar character. The new Farce went 
off very well. 

<2ngli$) <©pera^)ou3c* 

There was another crowded bouse here last night, to see The 
Frozen Lake, and Mr. Mathews in Jonathan IV. Doubikins, and 
Dick Cypher. The first piece is a light pretty thing, and is likely 
hereafter to be often acted, when it can be so well represented as it 
now is. Miss Kelly and Mr. Wrench got great applause. Of course, 
it is superfluous to say, that an incessant burst of merriment was ex- 
cited by the two other pieces, Mr. Mathews, &c. u poked their fun" 
too effectually on us to allow time for gravity. 

(From a Correspondent.) 
Sadler's Wells — A high treat was given at this house on Monday 
to a fashionable and numerous audience, in the production of an in- 
teresting melo-drama, from the pen of a Mr. Judah, of the United 
States of America, where it has been acted with the most extraordi- 
nary success, for more than 200 successive nights. In our opinion it 
is decidedly the best piece of the kind ever witnessed here : the plot 
is completely original: the incidents peculiar and pleasing ; the sce- 
«ery is of that splendid description that cannot fail exciting admira- 
tion. — we need only add the name of the artist, (Greenwood) to 
sonvince our readers of its excellence ; the music deserves more than 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



©idiuary praise, and is another proof of the capabilities and talent 
of the composer, (H. Nicholson) ; the characters, which are ably 
written, were all finely delineated by the company, the strength of 
which is very judiciously brought into action. We cannot eulogise too 
much the liberality displayed by the management, in bringing forth 
so valuable an acquisition to their stage ; the production of which, we 
understand, was entrusted to the care of Mr. Gallott, to whom 
every praise is due for the inimitable manner he has brought it for- 
ward. We congratulate the proprietors in placing it in such able, 
hands; and on their success of Monday evening ; we have no doubt 
but it will run the season ; at least it deserves it. — The loudest ap- 
plause attended its announcement for the week. A very laughable 
piece, called " If the Cap fits ye, wear it" was also produced, and 
received the approbation it merited. The water-piece of " Abdellacf 
retains its high rank. Mr. Bryant sings an Irish Medley, which is 
always encored. 

The Surrey and Davis's Amphitheatre were most numerously at- 
tended last night, and the performance at each house went off with 
great approbation. 

The Aberdeen Theatre wa$ opened on Tuesday se'nnight, and Mr. 
Sinclair acted Prince Orlando, in the Opera of The Cabinet. 

Mr. Macready appeared at the Belfast Theatre on Monday, in Co- 
riolanus. He is engaged there for twelve nights.— British Press. 

Died, on the 18th. instant, at Bath, Mr. Stanton, formerly and 
for many years, Manager of the Preston, Lancaster, and other Thea- 
tres in the North of England. 

A Mademoiselle Legros, one of the dancers at the King's Theatre, 
lately went from this country to Paris, having, as she imagined, care- 
fully packed in her trunk jewellery to the amount of £8000. sterling, 
a property, of course, not wholly acquired by the agility of her " light 
fantastic toe." Upon her arrival in the French capital, she found 
that her jewellery-box was gone ; that the robbery is supposed to have 
been committed in London, by persons who were about her whilst 
packing her trunks. — No clue has yet been discovered that is likely to 
lead to their detection. 

Mr. Archer, of Drury Lane, performed Hotspur, in Shakspeare's* 
Henry the Fourth, at the Bristol Theatre, on Monday night. — The 
legend of the renowned Whittington and his Cat, has been got up as 
a Pantomime, in which the activity of Ellar, and the accentricity of 
Paulo, astonished and delighted their auditors. Mr. Grey, pro- 
prietor of the celebrated Fantoccini, is engaged for a limited number 
of nights by Mr. Macready. Last night John Bull, Monsieur Ton- 
son, and Merry Mourners, were the performances. The excellence 
of Gattie's Morbleu is well known to our readers ; and on this oc- 
casion he played it with all his former humor and judgment.

The performances here last night, were Sweethearts and Wives, 

-'Twould Puzzle a Conjuror, and JVo Song no Supper. In the latter 

piece Miss Love appeared, for the first time, as Margaret to, and 

sang delightfully. Mr Harlot acted Robin very humorously. — The 

house was remarkably well attended. 

€ng!i^!j ©gcra#cn£e. 

A house crowded in every part soon after the opening of the doors, 
was the result of another announcement of Der Frcischutz, with 
Miss Paton and Mr. Pearman in the two principal vocal characters. 
The music of this Opera is, indeed, so strikingly characteristic, so 
grand and so sentimental, that its vast attraction cannot be a matter 
of wonder. Weber, its composer, does not, however, appear clever 
at light pieces of music ; his mirthful airs want the playful turns 
which the French composers are so happy in producing. The solemn, 
the rapid, and the tender styles, are what he appears best calculated 
to shine in. "Miss Paton gave fine effect to the scena ; her execution 
of some of the passages was very brilliant ; but we have heard her, 
we think, in better voice. The delicate organ of these fair vocalists 
is often affected by the changes of the weather, and the variations of 
health to which every one is liable. A little indisposition — a little 
flatness of animal spirits, are, thus, frequently productive of a most 
material temporary injury to the voice ; and which, although not 
^mounting to serious indisposition, and, therefore, not compelling an 
apology, is yet sufficient to lessen the clearness arid usual general effect 
of the tones, This is an evil audiences must frequently lay their ac- 
count with, and all they can say on the subject is, that if they have 
not heard their favorite singer in her finest condition, yet they have 
heard very nearly enough of perfection in brilliancy and sweetness, to 
command their delighted attention. Mr*, Pearman* has greatly raised 
his vocal fame by his very abJc execution of the music of his character, 
recently sustained by Mr. Brahaju. This gentleman we have ever 
commended for taste and a very pleasing voice ; besides being ah 
actor superior to most vocal performers,, He is always strictly at- 
tentive to the business of the scene, and his exertions to please seldom 
pass unrewarded by the audience. 

In Free and Easy, which followed, much entertainment was de- 
rived from the acting of Mr. Wkekch, Miss Kelly, &c. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Glasgow Theatre. — Our duties as '* Theatrical Observers," na- 
turally enough, induce us to occasionally watcb the progress of those 
actors and actresses who now, during the London recess, fill the most 
prominent characters in the drama on the provincial boards — -and 
which duty we cannot discharge more faithfully than hy setting forth 
the opinions of an able contemporary critic, relative to the perform- 
ances of Miss M. Tree and Bliss Edmiston, in Shakspeare's cele- 
brated Comedy of Twelfth flight ; or, What you Will, lately acted 
at the above Theatre. Of the former lady this gentleman remarks :— - 
" Miss Tree's Viola was animated in the extreme. There was a na- 
tive buoyancy, a sprigbtliness, and a sweet joy, through her whole 
performance, that was quite bewitching. Her several interviews with 
the Duke, her master, were chaste and faithful, betraying not the 
slightest symptom of love to him, or jealousy to Olivia ; and the 
smothered coldness with which she received Olivia's vows, was very 
delightful. And then, when Malvolia brought the ring to her, how 
knowingly she exclaimed — "lam the man!" Nothing, however, 
could exceed the effeminate fear, the cunning, and the masterful 
agility, with which she fought Sir Andrew. Madame Vestris could 
not have thrust at him mote slyly, or with greater ease and nimble- 
ne'ss. After paying the just tribute of approbation to Miss Tree, 
our Northern brother critic, in language not less remarkable for its 
eloquence than its strict adherence to truth, thus speaks of the grace- 
ful and energetic acting of Miss Edmiston, in the interesting and ar- 
duous chat actor of Olivia ;— ■" We were really delighted with Miss 
Edmiston's Olivia. We have occasionally missed her in the Theatre, 
and heard that she preferred private study to public exhibition-— dis- 
regarded any little pleasure which a four hours' seat in the boxes 
might afford, and drank, in the stillness of her own parlour, the ner 
tiferous incense which Shakspeare's pages produced. Olivia was a 
complete confirmation of it ; and the character combined all those 
springs of talent which constitute a great actress. Hitherto, as we 
formerly mentioned, Miss Edmiston was not general enough in her 
course of studies, and confined her feminine attractions, not so much 
to, general, as to particular traits of character. But to-night she was 
dignified and humble, austere and loving, scornful and tender, grave 
and humorous — a mixture of theatrical acquirements, which are not 
very common. The mournful respect she bore to her departed bro- 
ther — the indifference, and, indeed contempt, she exhibited to the 
Duke — the violent gust of love that Cupid so slyly blew into her 
breast — and the general good humor which she kept through the 
whole performance — were really quite surprising. With what a de- 
lightful majesty, and ease, and grace, did she draw in a chair, and 
desire the Clown to prove her a fool ! She scarcely felt enough of 
loving emotion in her first interviews with Cesario ; and we thought 
she was too abrupt in sending the ring after Viola. Cut, speaking 
generally, we can say, with sincerity, that no one belonging to the 
Glasgow company is making such rapid improvement — arising, too, 
principally from her own resources and her own though'

No. 875 Saturday, % ^ 18 182 4. Price hL 

The Musical Farce .of The Padlock, was performed last night, and 
introduced to us for the first time in the character of Leonora, the 
young lady whom our readers will recollect made some time ago a 
very sudden and favorable debut here, on the occasion of Miss Paton's 
indisposition. Bliss Holmes, as this young lady is named, evidently 
wants the experience and confidence which a provincial theatrical tour 
for a season or two would afford. She has a charming voice, but its 
efforts are quite suppressed by excessive diffidence and trepidation. — 
We arc sorry to remark that some part of the audience were so cruel 
as to shew impatience at being made to sit in judgment upon unpre- 
pared talent. London audiences expect too much perfection to be 
very indulgent in cases where there is an utter ignorance of the stage 
displayed. There is not the least doubt, but that Miss Holmes will 
in time become fully entitled to a high station amongst our vocalists 
JJut she must acquire confidence. Bliss Love played Lcandcr coura- 
geously, and sang in her usual full, rich tone. Mr. VVilliams and 
Mh W. West acted Don Diego and Jilungo very pleasantly. 

Married and Single, and the last new Farce followed, and greatly 
entertained a most crowded audience. 

The eccentric Mr. Mathews, whose inimitable humor has given 
birth to some of the most entertaining scenes on tins stage, again dis- 
played his powers of producing mirth last night, and, as usual, had 
a most crowded assembly of laughing countenances. Mr. Mathews 
is remarkable for accompanying his broad Farce with some natural 
touches that immensely encrease the effect, and prove him a close 
and just observer, of men and tilings. Some wise ass of a critic, se- 
veral years ago, upon occasion of his quitting Covent Garden Theatre, 
took the opportunity of giving the dead Lion, (as he no doubt was 
deemed) a passing kick, by asserting that he was no comedian but a 
mere mimic f The gentleman of the long ears must have before this 
have been ashamed of his foolish hit, and have been happy to hide 
himself and his sage opinion beneath the shade of the nearest goose* 
berry bush: for the truth is, that Mr. Mathews has iu Lid various 
entertainments produced here, and at all times, shewn his intimate 
Knowledge of human nature, and has given such faithful picture?

real character as place him high on the list of those whose profession 
it is to cmhody the passions, and pourtray the manners " living as 
they rise." Mimicry consists in giving the tone, look, and manner of 
some known individual ; but is not the proper term for the power of 
giving resemblances of general character. Mr. M. may, indeed, be 
said to be a mimic, and an excellent one also, yet he is not a mimic 
alone, but a correct personifier of many of the passions, and all the 
singularities that ever distinguished one man from another. Before 
Mr. JDoubikins entertained us last night, we had here the amusing 
Operatic Farce of Brother and Sister, (by permission of the Covent 
Garden proprietors.) This is a very pleasing piece, and was acted 
excellently, being supported by the chief vocal strength of the es- 
tablishment. Miss Paton sang delightfully as Donna Isidora, and 
gave " Bid me discourse," in the most finished style, which would 
have been encored universally, had not many of the audience justly 
felt the fatigue such a repetition would occasion. Miss Harvey re- 
appeared here on this occasion, and further confirmed the high opinion 
already formed of her vocal power* and talent. Mr. Piiilipps in the 
character of Don Sylvio, sang with his accustomed taste and effect, 
and was generally encored in " Dove has Eyes.!' Miss Povey, as 
Agatha , also contributed her very pleasing voice to the general har- 
mony. The other characters were very agreeably sustained by Messrs. 
Bartley, Chapman, and KEEi.EYand Miss Carr„ 



Among the passengers who were injured by the overthrow of the 
Buxton coach, was Mrs. Harvey, the daughter of the late Mr. Cum- 
mins, of this Theatre, who it will be remembered, suddenly fell down 
on the stage, and immediately expired. Being thus unable to fulfil 
an engagement into which she entered with the Manager of the Bux- 
ton Theatre, she is^now reduced, along with too infant children. To 
the most abject want and misery. A statement was circulated from Sir 
Francis Darwin, M. D., and Mr. Skinner, surgeon, from which it ap- 
peared that the bone of Mrs. Harvey's right leg was broken, and that 
she bad sustained several contusions and wounds. Fortunately Mr. 
Henry Johnston, the well-known performer, happened to be in Buxton 
at the time, and with a spirit of most commendable sympathy, he im- 
mediately set about raising a subscription for the unfortunate lady ; 
and we are happy to say, with a degree of success that reflects the. 
highest credit on the benevolence of the visitors at Buxton. In the 
course of three or four days the munificent sum of ^112 14s. was 
obtained at the different hotels, &c. The circumstances of the case, 
were mentioned to the Duke of Devonshire, who happened to visit 
Buxton for a few hours on Monday ; and, with his usual spirit of be- 
nevolence, he instantly presented Mr. Johnston with £10, for the re- 
lief of Mrs. Harvey. — Provincial Paper.

44 Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

A p. 876 Monday, Sept. 20, 1824. Price Id. 

A numerous company, among whom we noticed some of the most 
brilliant stars of the West, honoured this theatre, with their presence 
on Saturday evening, to witness the representation of Der Freischutz, 
and we were happy to observe that they, as well as the rest of the 
audience, lightened with their smile? of approbation the gloomy hor- 
.lors of the demonial Wolfs Glen. Miss Paton sa,ng with great 
effect, and indeed the whole of the performers exerted themselves in 
a superior manner. The amusing Farce of Gretna Green concluded 
the evening's entertainments, in which Messrs. Wrench, Pearman, 
Miss P'^vey, and Miss Kelly, amused greatly. 

This evening a new Musical Farce is to be brought forward, under 
the title of The Bashful Man, in which the inimitable Mr. Mathews 
appears in a leading character. 

l)apin\azlict GLlytatzc. 

On Saturday evening, the Comedy of The Country Girl, was per- 
formed here for the first time this season, and we believe, for the pur- 
pose of introducing a young lady in the arduous character of Peggy. 
She was led on the stage by Mrs. Clifford, who performed the part 
of Alithea ; she Was nearly overcome by her feeling, but on recover- 
ing, her performance was marked with great intelligence and spirit ; 
and she preserved throughout the smartness and point of the dialo- 
gue. Her voice is good, and her articulation remarkably distinct. 
We shall speak more at large of her qualifications when we have seen 
her a second time, and wc certainly anticipate that she will rank high 
in her profession. The audience testified their approbation of her 
performance most unanimously. A more successful debut is rarely 
witnessed. — But we think, we have seen this young lady play at York 
not long since. 

Mr. Vining, as SparJcish, Mr. Cooper, as Harcourt, and Mr. Wil- 
liams's, Moody, were excellent. Mrs. C. Jones, acted Lucy to life, 
and the Alithea of Mrs. W. Clifford, was highly respectable. The 
Comedy was announced for Friday next with great applause 'Twould 
Puzzle a Conjuror followed, and was well received. The Review con- 
cluded the night's amusement. — The house was full in all parts. A 
gentleman was carried from the pit in a fit, 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



This evening Mr. Liston takes his Benefit at the* Haymarket, on 
which occasion is to be revived a favorite Comedy, 

Daring Outrage at the Cobourg. — On Saturday evening, after 
the performance of George the Third, a glass bottle was thrown from 
the gallery on the stage, which broke two or three of the lamps, and 
nearly struck one of the musicians. — Mr. Davidge afterwards came 
forward, and offered a reward of five guineas to any person who would 
point out the offender, and, inconsequence of which, he was imme- 
diately apprehended by an officer, and carried to the watch-house. 

Surrey. — This evening the melo-drama of Der Freisckutz ; or, 
the Demon of the Wolf's Glen and the Seven Charmed Bullets ! and 
the Scotch drama of Waverley : or, Sixty Years Since. 

Davis's Amphitheatre. — There is to be a grand Union Fete this 
evening in honour of the great success of the Military Spectacle of 
The Battle of Waterloo. 

Mr. Macready is now performing some of his principal characters 
at the Belfast Theatre, with the 4clat that ever distinguishes the 
acting of this celebrated tragedian. On Thursday last he appeared 
in his favorite part of Virginias, in the Play of that name ; and, as 
might be expected, was rewarded by an overflowing audience with the 
most rapturous testimonials of applause. He was ably supported by 
Mr. Hambltn, late of Drury Lane, who enacted Icilius. 

It is said in the theatrical circles that Weber's Opera of Preziosa 
is shortly to be produced at Coveat-gardcn Theatre, with all its Ger- 
man spleudour ; and that another of Weber's Operas, JRml Hassan, 
which contains a most beautiful polacca with , violoncello accompani- 
ments, will likewise shortly be produced at Drury-lane. An author 
of celebrity has just completed an Opera for the Covent-garden ma- 
nagement, the story founded on an incident in the reign of Frederick 
the Great, which has never been dramatized. 

Mr. Abbott, late of Covent-garden theatre, opens the Dublin 
theatre on the 23rd of next month. He has engaged a respectable 
company, and is likely to be very successful. 

On Monday last the Merchant of Venire was played at the Margate 
theatre, on which occasion the veteran Gardner, the proprietor of 
the library and loo rooms, personated the character of Shylock. The 
house was crowded, and Mr. Gardner — mangre his physical infir- 
mities — acquitted himself excellently. He is 78 years of age.

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. 877 Tuesda y t r Sepl 21^1824. Price Id. 

Last night a now Farce, in two acts, was produced here, under the 
title of The BaslifvJ Man. It is composed almost wholly of practi- 
cal jokes, which the following account will shew: 

Jlfr. Blushingion, (Mathews) is sent hy his father to Oxford as a 
poor scholar, where he is to make his way hy hard reading ; but in 
consequence of a large fortune devolving on him hy the sudden death 
of a relation, he quits college and his hooks, and prepares for his 
entre into polite life , never ^having been accustomed to this, he is 
quite at fault, and his mauwise honte renders him completely ridicu- 
lous. He is invited to dine with Sir T. Friendly, (W. Bennett) 
with whose daughter Dinah, (Miss Povey) it is proposed to bring 
about a match, having beea acquainted with her brother, Frank 
Friendly, (Broadhurst) at college. The idea of this visit to Sir 
Thomas alarms him as much as an invitation to the infernal regions 
might be supposed to do. He foresees lots of blunders and awkward- 
nesses, and is only induced to go by the intreaties of his servant. He 
is met in the grounds by all Sir Thomas's domestics, whose attentions 
and laughter overwhelm him, and he escapes through them to be in- 
troduced to their master and his lady, who await him in the library. 
Here he commits the most ridiculous mistakes, till at length Sir Tho- 
mas coming upon the subject of books, he feels a little more at home ; 
and a Xenophon in duodecimo attracts his attention, which he jumps 
on a chair to reach, but instead of a book, pulls down a closet-door, 
'(Sir Thomas's library being a mere collection on wood) he falls on the 
table below, overturns the ink-stand, and spills the ink on the fine 
scarlet table-cover. This shocks him, and he pulls out his white 
pocket-handkerchief and wipes it up, replacing the inky napkin in his 
pocket in the hurry of the confusion that distracts him. The dinner 
is now announced, and he hands off the Butler in the place of my 
lady. At the dinner table he is quite distressed how to behave him- 
self — he spills the salt, which being considered unlucky, my lady re- 
quests him to throw some over his left shoulder, when he casts it in 
their eyes. A glass of wine is proposed, when he fills his glass from 
the vinegar-cruet— then overturns a plate of hot soup on his while 
pantaloons — next he burns his mouth with hot pudding, and cools it 
with -brandy — finally, being quite overcome with his disasters, and 
running down with perspiration, he wipes his face with the inky hand- 
kerchief, which blackens his whole countenance, and horror-struck at 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



this. accident, and the general laugh, he rises, but having the table- 
cloth put through his button-hole., instead of a napkin, his movement 
drags the whole contents of the table orF, and ho flics in the most lu- 
dicrous confusion. This ends the first net; the second is taken up 
with a plot of Sir Thomas's family to teach Jllr. Blushington con- 
fidence by an example of impudence on their part. They invite them- 
selves-to dine at his house, to his perfect distraction ; and he is loft 
to a tete-a-tete with Jlliss Dinah Friendly, Sir Thomas's fair daugh- 
ter, which plunges him into further alarms. The young lady pretends 
to faint, and he is compelled to take her in his arms. This situation 
enables him to look in her face, and lo! he feels the influence of love ! 
This new feeling, warms him into a little courage; and at dinner, 
having been well plied with wine by young Friendly, he gains further 
courage. A drunken-scene takes place, and Jfr. Blushington is at 
last brought to look all his friends in the face, and avow that the best 
remedy for sheepishness, is a pair of preity eyes well applied. 

This piece entirely depends, as it may be supposed, on the acting 
of ]\ Jr. MATHEWi. He admirably represented the whole character: 
and in the courting and the drunken-scenes, particularly, gave the 
most amusing picture of an endeavour to overcome that bash fulness 
which book-worms are so frequently troubled with. Two or three 
songs by Mr. Broadiiurst and Miss Povey were prettily sung, and 
the piece altogether was quite successful. 



Mr. Liston had a bumper benefit here last night. Vast numbers 
were seen going from the doors disappointed of gaining even lobby- 
room. 

Sadler's Wells. — A new Melo-drame entitled Von Orenburg, the 
Hungarian Outlaw ; or, the Castle of the Lake. This piece is writ- 
ten by Mr. Bryant, author of several successful pieces at the The 
Cobourg, Royalty, &c. It was received most favorably, and, no 
doubt, will have a run. 

Belfast Theatre. — Mr. Macready's able personation of Shaks- 
peare's principal characters continue to prove highly beneficial to the 
almo t exhausted treasury of this theatre. The following judicious 
and candid strictures on his performance of the part of Coriolanus, 
we extract from a well-written and popular Irish Journal, called The 
Irishman. " We have seen the Coriolanus of Mr. Mac ready. Had 
we not seen the late John Kemele in the same character, we might 
liave left the theatre with the impression that Mac-ready had person- 
ated this haughty aristocrat with much correctness; but the majesty 
of deportment — the fine classic face — the ease and grace, and, if we 
may say so, sublimity of demeanour which characterized every move- 
ment of Kemble, created such a measure of excellence in our mind, 
that it would require such another figure and face as Kemble to sa- 
tisfy us with tin- performance of Coriolanus."

The second performance of The Bashful Man was perfectly suc- 
cessful. Mr. Mathews displays in this piece some admirable acting ; 
and the shouts of laughter that attended his whole representation of 
the blushing hero was a convincing proof of the comic effect produced. 
We understand that Mr. Monckieff is the author of this Farce, which 
is exactly what we should expect from his pen, which i3 very expert 
at stringing ludicrous incidents, although the dialogue i& often "very 
poor. There are amongst the jokes in this piece many old acquain- 
tances ; and in no instance is a strikingly original one : but still the 
object of raising a laugh is amply effected, and, so what is the use of 
further criticism on the matter. 

A Dun a Day followed, in which $fr. Hartley shines as the per- 
plexed, credit-giving tailor. In consequence of the change of the 
second piece yesterday morning, Mr. Baker, who was to have played 
Young Rakely, in A Dun a Day, being absent in the country, (he 
not knowing of the change) Mr. Henry read his part. The enter- 
tainments concluded with Mr. Mathews's second dose of fun, ad-

The Comedy of The Clandestine Marriage was repeated here 
last night.— Lord Ogleby, b\ Mr. W. Farren, and Fanny, by Miss 
Chester. We have go recently spoken of the performance oMlris 
piece at this Theatre, that we have nothing new to remark upon it— 
Every one knows that the infirm and lordly old beau is one of Mr. 
Farrem's very be ^t characters — indeed, no one at present on the stage 
can venture to compete the character with him— it is his own property, 
and possibly may not pass into other equally successful keeping for 
many a year. Mis* Chester in any character of loveliness and sen-, 
timent, is the very personification of beauty and virtue. She baa 
beeu admired in lively comedy, but her forte does not lie so much in 
that line, as that of the more serious parts. Her Dinah Primrose, 
in The Young Quaker, and her Mary Thornberry, in John Bull, are 
far before her Beatrice or her Lady Teazle. The other characters in 
this Comedy were pleasantly performed. 

In Intrigue, Mi. HARLEYand Madame Vestris supported the cha-

again amused by dint of Mr. Liston's and Mr. Harlev's humorous 
acting, and the effective representation of the Russian autocrat by 
Mr. Cooper, who, by the bye, is one of the most useful performers 
any theatre can possess ; for his talents can be brought into play in 
every species of drama, except Pantomime, he not being light-heeled, 
nor capable of playirg the fool, except we reckon Poor Tom, in 
Shakspeare's King Lear. 

Covent Garden Theatre opens on Monday next, with the tragedy of 
Romeo and Juliet, and the last new Pantomime of Harlequin and 
Poor Rolin. Mr. C. Kemble is to be Romeo, and Miss F. H. Kelly 
Juliet. 

Mr. Kean has most handsomely given up his engagement at Lime- 
rick, (£40 per night) on finding that the theatre did not fill. He is 
engaged for twenty-eight nights at Drury-lane, at £48 per night. 

Mr. Charles Kcmblc, whose assiduity in catering for the gratification 
of the lovers of the Drama, is always on the alert, is reported to have 
engaged that eminent French tragedian, Talma, at an enormous sa- 
lary, for twelve nights, as an experiment. 



To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Mr. Editor, 

Excuse me for my abruptness, if you consider it so, but 
really I should feel pleasure in being informed what learned physician 
had the felicity of acquainting the public in your Friday's Observer, 
of the nervous and very affecting state of the organs, or rather the 
'pipes of our female vocalist. Believe me, he has instructed me in a 
very useful lesson, and in future, I shall never visit the theatre when 
the weather changes, and poor Miss P. &c. are supposed to be out of 
order, without first consulting you whether it is proper to do so : for, 
certainly, to use your enlightened expression, as we say of a good 
horse, 1 wish always to see tUem mfine condition. I feel certain that 
the manly Editor never wrote the article, but has been imposed upon 
by some effeminate, and would-be-critic. 

I remain, your's, &c.

Medicus will find, notwithstanding his sneer, that these " delicate

Daily Mills of the Play. 

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. 879 Thursday r Sept. 23, 1824. Price Id. 

There was a crowded and elegant audience here last night, to see 
Mr. Mathews in The Bashful Man, and Jonathan in England. He 
was highly amusing in each, and was encored in his song in the for- 
mer piece, and also his first one in the latter. In Military Tactics, 
which was the Interlude, Mr. Pearman had an encore. Miss Povet, 
Miss Holdaway, and Mr. Broadiiurst, sang very pleasingly. 

Sweethearts and Wives, 'T would Puzzle a Can juror, and a Roland 
for an Oliver, were the entertainments last night, and afforded great 
amusement to a most numerous and genteel audience. 

Mr. W. Farren takes his benefit here to-night, and, as our play- 
bill will shew, presents a mass of entertaining pieces. Love and Gout 
has not been acted for several years. Mr. Lis ton also repeats his 
Comic Address in the character of Mawworm. 

Covcnt Garden Theatre will be opened for the season on Monday 
next, September 27. The other nights of performing during the week 
will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

Boulogne English Theatre. — Mr. Smithson, the proprietor of 
this Theatre, has conducted it with great spirit, although he has not 
been so successful as he deserved. Mr. Wallack and Mr. J. Knight 
lias been acting here, and the charming Miss Smtthson is engaged for 
a few nights. Many of our best Comedies and Farces have been very 
respectably acted. 

Mr. Kean's Benefit at the Galway Theatre, was a complete bum- 
per. The Galway Paper states, that during Mr. Kean's stay in that 
city, some unknown villain or villains, for purposes which no one can 
divine, cut and destroyed the pannels of his carriage. 

* The Theatre at Sydney appears to be in a very flourishing state/ 
said a gentleman to John Kemble, speaking of the Botany Bay the- 
atricals. " Yes," replied the tragedian. " the performers ought to be 
all good, for they have been selected and sent to that situation by very 
excellent Judges. 1 '

THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir — There is no subject which has been held up to public censure 
more than Amateur theatricals. The finger of ridicule has been 
pointed against those votaries of the drama who choose to amuse them- 
selves in this species of entertainment, and tbe sarcastic grin of con- 
tempt ever accompanies the mention of our amateur's name. Certainly 
there are many who commit " murder most foul/' yet the generality 
are respectable — some few excellent instances are before our eyes ; and 
when we recollect the boyish days of our two first tragedians, Keast 
and Young, likewise of many other excellent actors, not forgetting 
the celebrated Harley, wo must own that private theatricals are not 
to be despised. I myself, when a youth, had the honor of playing 
with Mr. Young ; little did he then think that he would ever be at the 
head of the first theatre in the world. 

I have been induced to make the above remarks, in consequence of 
witnessing the representation of Morton's School of Reform, at the 
Amateur Theatre, Crown Street, on Friday last. — (I have heard it 
had boon performed once before) It was well got up, and played in 
a superior style. Mr. Percival's General Tarragon possessed a vein 
of humor, natural and unaffected.-— His performance was strongly 
marked, and characterized by genuine comic humor. His style of 
playing brought forcibly to my recollection the peculiar merits of the 
celebrated Quick : he possessed all the quaint ire ss and expression of 
his great original ; the all-subduing talent which never failed of in- 
spiring wonder and delight in every beholder, was not looked for in 
such a novice as Mr. P. ; he, however, acquitted himself in a manner 
highly gratifying to himself and his friends. Mr. Morrisoon's Fre- 
derick, was most vile ; and Mr. Selwyn's Lord Awndale, dull and 
inanimate. We were highly delighted by the admirable manner in 
which Robert Tyke was played by Mr. Hamylton: he gave a natural 
and truly effective picture of the rustic rogue. — The confidence of big 
early scenes, and remorse and agonies of his latter ones, were dis- 
played in a style the frequenters of Amateur Theatres are seldom ac- 
customed to witness. — He gave the detail of his father's death in an 
excellent and affecttfig manner. T have seen that great master of the 
passions, Mr. Emery, in this character, and likewise his talented suc- 
cessor, Mr. Rayner, and must admit their delineations to be truly 
awful. To draw a comparison betweeu them and my present subject, 
would be, perhaps, ridiculous ; yet I may venture to aver, that when 
time shall have matured the rising talents of Mr. H. he will, in tbe 
true sense of the word, become not only a useful but a good actor. — 
He appears to be very young — his dress was not suitable, and his 
dialect in many parts very deiecti've. i.]L;s Leicester's Mrs. Fer- 
ment was an excellent pciicnr.ance. The JVedding Day, and Is He 
Jealous? concluded the evening's entertainments. * A *

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

No. 880 Friday, Sept. 24, 1824. Price Id. 

This day is the Anniversary of the first appearance of this Paper. 
Three years have now elapsed, and it can with truth be said, that its 
pages have always been marked by an endeavour to support the best 
interests of the British Stage, which includes the histrionic and li- 
terary character, with the moral reputation that should distinguish 
the national Theatre of an enlightened and well regulated society.— r 
Our excrtious shall not cease, and we, therefore, may confidently look 
forward to a long continuance of the same liberal patronage which 
we have attained in every class. 

The Frozen Lake still affords exercise for the skill of Miss Kelly, 
Mr. Pearman, Mr. Keeley, &c. who glide over the affair very 
smoothly. In Der Freischutz we again had the pleasure of hearing 
Miss Patox sing. We presume she will support the same character 
in this piece when produced at Co vent Garden Theatre, where it is in 
preparation with the greatest possible effect. If Mr. Bennett is to 
play there his present character of Caspar, we do in treat of him to 
get rid of that peculiar false emphasis which so often disfigures his 
delivery. His own car, if he has no judicious friend at hand, might 
surely rectify this. 



Mr. \V. Farren had his Benefit here last night— we were not pre- 
sent, and, therefore, know nothing about it. 

The Young Lady who made her debut as Peggy, in The Country 
Girl, the other night, appears for the second time this evening. 

We hear that the celebrated French tragedian, Talma, is engaged 
for twelve nights at Covent Garden Theatre. It is said that this gen- 
tleman was born in Dean Street, Soho, and went in early life to France, 
notwithstanding which he speaks the English tongue fluently. , We 
conceive, however, that his performance of English characters will be 
more curious than correct.

Covcnt Garden Theatre will be opened for the Reason on Monday 
next, September 27. The other nights of performing during the week 
will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

Surrey. — This beautiful and pleasant Summer Theatre is nightly 
attended in a most gratifying manner, and the able efforts made in 
every department to merit public favor is thus jnstly rewarded. The 
performances of to-night are Der Freischutz, with The Burning 
Bridge. 

A Son of Mr. Harris, one of the Proprietors of Covent Garden 
Theatre, was, lately, nearly drowned on the French coast. 

Mr. Liston is not, we understand, to appear in London during the 
ensuing winter season. Report says, he has in a view a retreat for a 
time, to the environs of Bath, to enjoy his past fame, and the solid 
returns it has produced him. 

The Manchester Theatre had to boast of a numerous and brilliant 
audience on Saturday night. The Play was Shakspeare's sterling 
Comedy of As You Like It, in which the fascinating Miss M. Tree 
performed the love-sick and romantic Rosalind, with all her wonted 
excellence : indeed, the part never possessed a more graceful or effi- 
cient representative. In addition to the songs in the drama she in- 
troduced (her own) ' Home, sweet home,' and " Rest Warrior, rest' 
which were applauded to the " echo." The veteran Blanchard, ap- 
peared as Touchstone, and he never embodied this extraordinary 
creation of the great poet's mind with more animation and masterly 
judgment. The afterpiece was that mirth-inspiring Farce of Simpson 
and Co. and the distressing dilemmas and whimsical situations of the 
poor tortured and perplexed Mr Simpson, kept John Bull and his 
fair spouse on the broad giin for the, rest of the evening. 



To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir, 

Well knowing your willingness to oblige whenever it is in 
your power, I take the liberty of requesting you will inform me, upon 
what principles the Amateur Theatre, in Crown Street, is carried on. 

The fact is this ; — it having been remarked by many of my friends, 
that I have a tolerable ability for the drama, I wish to take a cha- 
racter at some private theatre, by way of trial — therefore, if you can 
give me any information with this view, you will extremely oblige,

1$a#?maxUct €ijcaim ' 

The second appearance of the " Young Lady," in the character of 
J\Ii88 Peggy, in the Comedy of The Country Girl, drew a very nu- 
merous audience to this jhouse last night. As far as a judgment can 
be formed from a performance of a single character, we may take on 
ourselves to pass a decided opinion of this debutante. Her represen- 
tation of The Country Girl is replete with proofs of talent for the 
stage, yet it is n©t, in every respect, the true Miss Peggy. The 
great charm which Mrs. Jordan threw around the character was an 
indescribable naivete ; an artless manner concealing much natural cun- 
ning. In her style of performing the part, there was nothing to be 
discovered to lead you to suppose there was any acting, except where 
the deception Peggy practices on her bud, requires its display. Now, 
this '* Young Lady" (we know her by no other name) is frequently 
found acting where all should be pure simplicity. We know, that be- 
fore this art of simplicity can be fully attained, great confidence is 
required, and much practice, which we are inclined to believe this 
" Young Lady" has not yet had. It is, therefore, with a considera- 
tion of this alterable defect, that we venture to assert, when further 
experience shall shew her in the full possession of her powers, she 
will command general admiration. Even at present, she is capable, 
in the character in question, to elicit very just applause, and which 
was showered upon her animated efforts very profusely last night.— 
She has qualities that evidently calculate her to shine in a superior 
sphere of the drama, and she may therefore look forward to become 
a London star at no very distant period. Her person is very pre- 
possessing ; and her features capable of much varied and agreeable 
expression : 'her speaking voice pleasing, and perfectly at her com- 
mand, and, in general, admirably modulated to the sense of her au- 
thor. In short, we have very high hopes of this " Young Lady," who 
has but to attain a little more experience, and we may expect her to 
be ranked amongst our London favorites. 

Mr. Cooper, Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Vining, represented the Gen- 
tlemen of the piece very well. The latter in the drunken-scene, acted 
with superior effect. Mrs, Clifford; as Jllithea, end Mrs. C. Jones, 
-as Lucy, assisted very ably in giving due effect to the Comedy. But 
of Mr. Williams's Moody, we must make this remark, that the cha- 
racter required more of the air of the man of breeding than he threw 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



into it. At the close of Epilogue, spoken very excellently by the 
" Young Lady," several rounds of applause marked the approbation 
of the audience. 

A new Musical Piece, in one act, entitled Birds without Feathers, 
is in rehearsal here, and will be produced next week. 



Another crowded audience was assembled here last night, to see 
the Musical Farce of The Bashful Man, witb-the Comic Operetta of 
Is He Jealous ? and the Farce of Jonathan in England. In the for- 
mer piece, Mr. Mathews acted with his usual comic humor, and re- 
ceived thunders of applause. Mr. Wrench and Miss Kelly, in the 
second piece, performed with their accustomed excellence ; and Mr. 
Mathews, in Jonathan W. Doubikins, kept the audience wide awake. 

Covent Garden Theatre will be opened for the season on Monday 
next, September 27. The other nights of performing during the week 
will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

Sadler's Wells. — This Theatre has been very numerously attended 
this week to witness the representation of a new melo-drama, entitled 
Von Orenburg, the Hungarian Outlaw ; or, the Castle \ of the Lake. 
Mr. Mortimer, in the Ontlaw, surprised us with his excellent acting. 
Cartlich, as a Fop in a dragoon dress, reminded us of a * Tenth." 
No person, we are certain, can play the Fool better than Vale ; and 
Bryant, in the Irishman, performed and sang with much spirit. — 
This gentleman is an acquisition both as an author and performer. 
Mrs. Wilkinson is an excellent heroine; and Miss Johnston never 
sang better. 

Brighton Theatre. — A new after-piece, entitled The Cupid of 
Brighton, altered from a piece produced at the Adelphi Theatre last 
season, for the Benefit of Mrs. Baker, has been acted here twice.— 
Russell has an amusing character in it, and a view of the Chain Pier 
has been introduced. — It is by Mr. Morris, and possesses consider- 
able merit. Mrs. Baker, it is said, is engaged at one of the great 
winter theatres, and we hope this report is true, for we know no one 
who would be a more valuable acquisition to either of those houses, 
in the characters sustained by Miss Foote and Miss Beaumont, than 
this lady. She appeared on Wednesday in Little Pickle, and was 
rapturously encored in the Hornpipe ; and on Thursday, by particular 
desire, the part of Young Norval, in the Play of Douglas.— Der 
Freischutz has done wonders. T. Cooke and Mountain have been 
re-engaged. The Piece has already been played nine successive nights 
and is announced for three more.

Covent Garden Theatre Opens por tub Season this Evening.

The piece called Dog Days in Bond Street, with 'Twoidd Puzzle 
a Conjurer, and Married and Single, were acted on Saturday night 
to a numerous audience, and afforded much entertainment. 



The Frozen Lake, and Der Freischut.z, were the performances of 
Saturday night. In the latter, the fine music executed by Miss Paton, 
Miss Povey, Mr. Pear man, Mr. H. Phillips, &c. gave the highest 
delight to a most numerous audience. 

Direful Robbery. — We have to mention a disaster which has be- 
fallen three of our popular public singers, as they are called in the 
Provincial Paper. Messrs. Evans, Collyer, and Fitzwilliam have 
been jointly and severally robbed of their portmanteaux, which not 
only contained their clothes and music, but their cash ! This mishap 
is stated to have happened on the road between Ilfracombe and Barn- 
staple, by the cutting off the said portmanteaux from their carriage ! 
A reward of £20. is offered for all the cash, jewellery, music paper, 
and other valuables therein contained ; from whence we may gather 
that their individual loss in respect of the said clothes, cash, &c. is 
of a very considerable amount I We hope the miscreants who could 
so shamefully rob three such popular singers, who were, we under- 
stand, in high glee at the amount of cash their successful talents had 
produced them, will be speedily caught and brought to condign pu- 
nishment. 

Miss M. Tree, of Covent Garden Theatre, arrived at Southampton 
on Monday, under an engagement to play four nights at that theatre. 
She played at Manchester on Saturday evening, and, travelling during 
almost the whole interval, arrived only two hours before she was to 
appear on the stage. In consequence, no doubt, of such great exer- 
tions, she was taken very ill on Wednesday with a spitting of blood, 
&c. : which, to the great regret of her numerous admirers, has dis- 
qualified her from acting at Southampton any more this feason.— Bri- 
tish Press.

THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



there are opportunities for a close adherence to actual character, 
which Mr. Mathews takes full advantage of. This Farce is a tissue 
of incidents rendered very comic by the acting in the principal part, 
and without Mathews it would be a perfect nonentity. Miss Kelly, 
in the character of Mrs. Dashington, in the comic piece of Belles 
without Beauac, was highly amusing : and afterwards Mr. Mathews 
kept up the laugh as Jonathan W. Doubikins — The house was crowded 
in every part. 

Mr. Stevenson, the veteran box-hook keeper of this Theatre, has 
hi9 Benefit on Thursday next, when he presents us with that extra- 
ordinary piece The Vampire, and other excellent entertainments.

Sweethearts and Wives must ever he favorites, and the way in 
which they have been made use of here, has not lessened the interest 
they are generally found to possess with us lords of the creation. 

J? aul and Virginia, which is a pretty little piece, was very well 
acted, and Madame Vestris looked and sang in a most interesting 
manner. Mr. Liston, as Van Bunder, in the new Farce, aided by 
Mr. Harlev, Mr. Cooper, &c. render that piece entertaining enough. 

A new Musical Farce, entitled u Birds ivithout Feathers/' is in re- 
hearsal here, and will be produced on Thursday next.

the 19th representation of Der Freischutz ; or, the Bemon of the 
Wolfs Glen and the Seven Charmed Bullets ! and the melo-drama of 
The Gipsies' Haunt. In the former piece, Mr. Rowbotham acted 
the character of Rodolph with considerable effect ; and in the latter 
Mr. H. Kemble, Mr. Rowbotham, Mr. Loveday, &c. performed their 
several parts uncommonly well. 

Sadler's Wells. — This Theatre was last night very well attended, 
to see the popular pieces of The Vigil of St. Mark, with the comic 
burletta of The Mistakes of a Nigfd, and the drama of Von Oren- 
burg, the Hungarian Outlaw ; or, the Castle of the Lake, all of 
which were most pleasantly acted.

Mr. Mathews's performances and all the entertainments of this 
Theatre, are soon about to close for the season. Next week is the 
final one, when the doors will be closed on a series of entertainments 
that have attracted in an uncommon degree. Last night another 
crowded house proved the attractions of The Bashful Man, Mr. 
Jonathan IK Doubikins, &c— There was much laughing, and many 
palmy honors were bestowed . 

I^apmiarfeet €fpatre« 

The Comedy of The Rivals was acted here last night, cast with 
all the comic strength erf the company. At the head of the list we 
had Mr. W. Farren, as Sir Anthony Absolute, a character which at 
Drury Lane is in high keeping, being there represented by Mr. Dow- 
ton, in a style superior to what any other performer at present on 
the Metropolitan Stage, can reach. Mr. Farren's Sir Anthony, we 
think, may rank next to Mr. Fawceit's. He certainly shews a per- 
fect conception of the character ; and it is only in his physical qua- 
lities that any defect is apparent. His scene with his son the Captain, 
where he finds him opposed to his wishes, and that where he remarks 
his overdone readiness to marry any piece of deformity paternal care 
might provide him, were excellently sustained, and properly marked 
by the very numerous and genteel audience. Mr. Cooper acted Faulk- 
land with much discrimination, and was ably supported by Mrs. 
Chatterley. Miss Chester represented Lydia Languish very well, 
and, certainly, looked the character excellently, as far as her features 
were engaged, but her person does not bear out the idea of the t deli- 
cate and romantic Miss Languish. Mr. Viking played Captain Ab- 
solute respectably. He wants a firm style for this character, which 
is absolutely necessary to give point to its dialogue. Mrs. Windsor's 
tone of voice'does not give sufficient pungency and effect to Mrs. 
Malaprop's lapses in her " auricular tongue." However, she acted 
the part very respectably. The character of Bob Acres was conferred 
on Mr. Liston ; but we must say that,bating his physiognomy, he does 
not make it half so humorous as Mr. Harley docs. Mr. Liston too 
often trusts to a cock of his eye for creating a laugh ; and in Acres 
this will hardly suffice for the filling up which an active and clever 
performer such as Harley gives to it. The Comedy, altogether, 
seemed to give much entertainment, and was followed by the two 
pleasant pieces oVTwould Puzzle a Conjuror, and the Dtvil to Pay.

Cogent 4frrbcn Cijeatre. 

On last night, the second of the season, was presented the Comedy 
if Pride shall have a Fall. This piece is an extraordinary combination 
of nonsense and humor. Really, sitting it quite out, and being asked 
what one thinks of it } distracts the pericranium in no slight degree. 
We have smiled, we have laughed, we hare thought we had heard; 
some high sounding passages ; but after all, the confounding questioa 
•f what is all thin about'} intrudes, and puts one out of temper be~ 
sause we cannot answer it. If the Reverend George Ciioly com*-. 
jJoses his sermons as lucidly as his plays, his congregations will find 
no more reason for being wiser and Letter, than his audiences, liy 
the bye, we may here take the liberty of objecting to dramatical par- 
sons. In our humble opinion,a clergyman is a person who devotes his 
time and his thoughts to the promotion, amongst his less gifted fellow 
creatures, of a perfect veneration for the Deity, and a just and vir- 
tuous feeling between man and man. It is his duty to compose moral 
end religious orations and addresses — to visit the sick and the dis- 
tressed, and to perform every other duty of humanity. It is, there* 
fore, a perfect abandonment of clerical propriety, to be found com- 
posing dialogues to be spoken from a public stage, without any earthly 
reason but to make people laugh and to obtain money. The Play was 
well acted to a numerous audience. 

Afterwards, Brother and Sister was excellently supported by Mr. 
Fawcett, Miss Paton*, Miss Love, &c. who were warmly welcomed. 
SPhc latter lady was encored in " Taste, oh, taste.'' 



gnglijtfj <©pcra4fou0^ 

Mr. Mathews gave us three doses of fun last night, which was 
found very reviving to the body of the audience.— In the first piece of 
Jonathan in England, Mr. Mathews was encored in his song, " Two 
pound ten," and his Yankee song ; and in Hit or JUiss, which was 
the last piece, Mr. Mathews was called for by part of the audience 
to sing the Race song twice, but in consequeuce of the length thoro 
was some opposition, when Mr. M. came forward and said, " Slave tQ 
your will, I live but to obey, and as I shall soon be laid-up for the 
season, I will start for two more heats out of the three." — H* 
accordingly repeated two verses of the song. 

A numerous audience were assembled here last night to see Sweei~ 
hearts 8f Wives, 'Twould Puzzle a Conjuror, and Paul and Virginia,

No. 886 Friday, Oct. 1, 182J. Price Id. 



€ofccnt €articn 3Tf)catre. 

Much ado about Nothing was represented last night, in the same 
admirable style (hat it was acted in the previous season. It is a Play 
that almost entirely depends for effect on the manner in which the 
two principal characters are supported. In this respect it had due 
justice, from the excellent performance of Miss Chester and Mr. C. 
Kejmble, as Beatrice and Benedick, Miss Chester acts the cha- 
racter of the arch man-hater with vivacity and very attractive man- 
ner. Her interviews with Benedick, and her scene in the garden, were 
well executed, and received much applause. Mr. C. Kimble plays 
Benedick in that fine easy style for which he is so celebrated. He is 
remarkable for always retaining an air of good breeding in every cha- 
racter he supports, and in this, the man of high life and pleasant hu- 
mor was rendered eminently conspicuous. Although the chief enter- 
tainment derived from this Comedy lies in the bringing together thesft 
antipodes of the matrimonial sphere, jet there is some excellent hu- 
mor of a broader kind, derivable from the gentlemen of the watch. 
Mr. Farren's Dogberry produced much langhtcr, and Mr. Kekley's 
Verges was a good piece of still-life acting. Hero was well repre- 
sented by Miss Jones ; and Mr. Connor and Mr. Baker performed 
with much propriety the parts of Don Pedro and Don John ; and 
were Mr. Mason to relax from a certain stiffness of manner, which 
he always retains, he would have represented Count Claudio infinitely 
better. Aud, also, we take the liberty to observe on this young gentle- 
man and very young performer, that in addition to a natural style of 
acting, he should regulate his elocution according to the character he 
fills ; for a pompous delivery is rarely suitable except in tragedy, tie 
possesses a good figure and many requisites for the stage, and we 
should be sorry to see these qualities lost for want of attention to an 
easy and natural manner. The pretty melo-drama of The Hunter of 
the Alps followed, and gave great delight. 

Mr. Stevenson's Benefit here, last night, was very numerously at- 
tended, aud The Vampire, Is He Jealous ? aud Where shall I Dine I 
which were the pkcc~: presented on the occasion, gave great satisfac- 
tion. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Ipap^marltet Centre* 

There were The Young Quaker, ' T would Puzzle a Conjuror, and 
The Devil to Pay, at this Theatre last night, ft was what is called 
a ticket-night, or a benefit by sale of tickets for different members of 
the establishment. — A new Farce is to be presented to-night. 



Surrey. — There was a very good house here last night, for the 
Benefit of Mr. Buckingham and others. On this occasion Mr. Kent, 
who appeared last season at Covent Garden Theatre, as Richard the 
Third, acted that character, and obtained a great deal of applause. 
Every one will allow he possesses a great deal of energy, and repre- 
sents the character in a highly respectable manner. He hit, by mis- 
take, a poor Catesby a smart blow on the face with his sword. 

Olympic Theatre— -To-morrow evening,we observe> commences the 
season at this elegant little " Box ;" — the preparations have been ex- 
tensive, the [improvements numerous and jndicions. We were gra- 
tified the other day with a peep at the interior, which has received, 
the most costly and beautiful embellishments — the pannels of the 
boxes are painted blue, relieved with a neat frame of crimson, inlaid 
with wreaths of laurel and a profusion of gold ornaments ; the private 
boxes, as well as the public, have also !;ccn considerably improved ; 
a saloon has been built in the pit for the convenience and comfort of 
the visitors to that part of the theatre, and is fitted up with peculiar 
neatness. The bill of fare is more full, and possesses a greater va- 
riety than any ever before issued to the public : — a ballet, of which 
report speaks highly, under the singular title of Hydrophobia, is 
among the entertainments announced, and a parody upon the very suc- 
cessful Opera of Der Freischutz, from the pen, we understand, of 
the author of Dr. Syntax, Sec. Every exertion on the part of Mr. 
FRAMProN, the proprietor, has been put forth to render it, in point 
of splendour and accommodation, inferior to no establishment in the 
metropolis. We are glad to find the management again placed under 
the able direction of Mr. Viking, whose talent in the difficult capa- 
cities of manager and actor, are known sufficiently to the public to 
render comment from us unnecessary. Mr. Parker, we observe, will 
be at his old post, the boxcs ; whose attention and politeness has al- 
ways been proverbial.

** Nothing extenuate nor set down aught iu malice." 

Ao. 887 Saturday, Oct. 2, 1824. Price Id. 



Tjir Comedy of The Clandestine Marriage was again admirably 
acted la at night, with Mr. W. Farren, as Lord 0«icby, which cha- 
racter no one at present on the stage can rival him in. Afterwards a 
new Musical Farce, in one act, was produced under the title of" Birds 
without Feathers'* This piece appears to have been taken from the 
Farces, called The Child of Mature and Sixteen Years' Labour Lost. 
The plot is, than an old hermit named Philip, (Mr. Younger) has 
long lived in a retired cell, hating the world, and particularly women, 
because Ids wife had run away from him. His son, Colin, (Mrs. T. 
Hill) has been brought up with him in utter ignorance, and he is par- 
ticularly anxious that he should never see any woman that could ii - 
spire him with love. However, another old gentleman, Rinaldo, (Mr. 
AY'flliams) who has placed his daughter, Eliza, (Madame Vestius) 
under a rigid, man-hating gouvenianto. (Mrs. 0. Jones) induces the 
liQrmit to visit him on condition that his (laughter should not be seen 
by his son. The young couple, notwithstanding all precautions meet, 
and under mutual astonishment admire each other. The hermit, jn 
order to check his son's rising feelings, tells him the fair creature is 
a Bird, which, (although surprised at its not having any feathers ,) 
he cannot help loving, and the old gentlemen at length fiuding it use- 
less to oppose nature, unite them. The music, which is pretty, we 
hear is composed by Mr. Nathan, and ceitninly merited to be allied 
to a piece of more solid worth. The audience were divided at the 
conclusion, although the majority were in favor of its repetition. — 
There was a crowded house. 

The Fro z en Lalce was followed by Brother and Sister, in which 
Miss Paton ants and sin?s so charmingly, and the last piece was 
Where shall I Dine '!-. — The house was rery well attended. 

Mr. Mathews concludes his engagement for the season this even- 
ing. We have to thank him for many merry moments ; and shall be 
anxious to see him At Home. 

A gentleman of the name of Suefiiehd was forcibly rohbed of his 
gold repeating watch, a magnificent chain and seals, at seven o'clock 
iii the evening, by a gang of pick-pockets, at the time he was paying 
his money at the pit door of the Has market Theatre. A powerful 
matt faced the loser, he tore open the buttons of his pantaloons, foi 
the chain had been tucked into the fob. Although there were at least 
thirty persons in the passage, the villain escaped with his booty;— 
watch and it? appendages were worth 100 t'uixieu

Cofcent €arfcen Zfyeattz. 

The fine tragedy of Hamlet was represented here last night, when 
Mr. C. Kemble supported the arduous character of the Prince of 
Denmark. We have frequently had the pleasure of noticing this per- 
formance ; and have expressed a high opinion of the talent" Mr. C. 
Kemble displayed in it. Without the fire of Mr. Kean, or the phi- 
losophical manner of Mr. Young, Mr. Kemble exhibits a just con- 
ception of the character, pourlrayed with a masterly hand, and in- 
cluding many touches of genius. We would chiefly instance as proofs 
of these, his acting in the first scene with the Ghost, that of the 
Play, and the chamber-scene with the Queen. The interview with 
Ophelia was also performed with much effect. There is a most im- 
portant advantage which Mr. Kemble has over the present leading 
representatives of Hamlet ; namely, he looks the character moie 
perfectly than they do. He carries with him an air of youth, of po» 
lished frank demeanour, which are absolutely necessary to the true 
effect expected from the character. We have also to remark, that 
Mr. Kemble appears to have rested more on a natural representation 
of Hamlet, than on point-making, as it is termed. He is highly 
commendable for thus abandoning all the trickery of the profession, 
and grounding his claims for approbation on the plain and genuine 
unfolding of the character which his immortal author has 60 power- 
fully drawn. The frequent applauses of pit and galleries testified the 
effect of his natural and energetic acting ; and the absorbed attention 
of the boxes proved its general strength and merits. The other cha- 
racters in the Play were well sustained. Ophelia, on this occasion, 
was under taken by Miss Hammersley, who executed the part in an 
interesting manner. The last year's Pantomime followed, and much 
amosed the numerous audi ence. 

The entertainments of last night were as gratifying to a crowded 
audience as most of those presented here during the season have 
been- To-night, the present campaign terminates ; and Mr. Arnold 
has every reason, we believe, to congratulate himself on the eminent 
success which has attended his exertions to amuse and gratify the 
public. 

There was abundant cause of mirth at this cheerful Theatre last 
night — Sweethearts and Wives, 'Twould Puzzle a Conjuror, and 
Teazing made Easy, followed each other only to keep up the smile 
the preceding piece had created, — There was a good house.

The Comedy of Jo//w Bull was acted last night. The character 
of honest, good-natured, afflicted Job Thornherry, was filled by its 
old representative, Mr. Fawcett, whose excellence in the part has 
frequently been the theme of our admiration. There is not a per- 
former at present on the Metropolitan Stage, who can so faithfully 
depict homely feeling, blended with a pleasant humor. He received 
great applause, and, indeed, the other chief characters were sup- 
ported in a manner to produce frequent marks of approbation, "ihe 
Comedy of Charles the Second followed with 'excellent effect. — There 
was a good house. 

The Hypocrite, Killing no Murder, and Paul and Virginia, were, 
of course, certain of attracting a full house here last night.— There 
are three highly amusing pieces announced for this evening. 



This Theatre last night closed an eminently successful season, with 
the performance of The Marriage of Figaro, and Gordon the Gyp- 
sey, and a variety of singing, being for the Benefit of Mr. Broad- 
hurst. — The house was crowded. At the close of the Opera, Mr. 
Bartley appeared and delivered the following Farewell Address : 

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

As the performances of this evening will terminate our 
short season, it becomes my duty to offer the usual tribute of thanks 
for the patronage wo have enjoyed. On no former occasion have I 
been warranted in doing this in terms so entirely unqualified as on the 
present. The great and various exertions which have been made to 
ensure your favor, have all been crowned with unprecedented success ; 
and it is not saying too much to assure you that our gratitude is com> 
mensurate with your liberal patronage. 

The proprietor hopes that he does 'not arrogate to himself more 
merit than your kindness will accord to him, when he boasts of having 
been the first to bring forward the masterly composition of the Frei- 
sckutz, The production of this splendid Opera may almost be con-

sidered as a new era in dramatic music ; and the extraordinary suc- 
cess which has attended it — notwithstanding the enormous expence 
incurred by its performance, and the other novelties which have been 
provided for your entertainment, has convinced him that even in his 
very limited season, in the most unfavorable period of the year, a 
powerful combination of excellence and talent is certaiu to receive the 
gratifying meed of your protection and support. 

In this conviction it is hardly necessary to assure you that the next 
season shall be marked even by increased energy ; and by new efforts 
to merit your approbation. 

It now only remains for me, Ladies and Gentlemen, to offer you 
the sincere thanks of the proprietor, and in my own name, and that 
of all the performers, to bid you respectfully farewell. 

The Surrey, Olympic, and Sadler's Wells, were excellently 
attended last night, and the performances at each house were received 
with great applause. 

Mr. C. Kemble is to appear as Octavian, in the Play of The 
Mountaineers, on Monday next : and Miss F. H. Kelly is to repre- 
sent Floranthe. Shakspeare's Comedy of As You Like It is pre- 
paring, with additional songs, duets, &c. the words selected from his 
works, and the music composed by Mr. H. R. Bishop. They are 
very busy at Covent Garden, also, with Der Frcischutz. 

Madame Vestris is engaged by Mr. Abbott to appear at the Dub- 
lin Theatre, i<u* I 6 nights. Miss Forde is likewise engaged. Mr. 
Burroughs ; of the Cobouig, also goes to that theatre. 

Mr. Glossop. — A private letter from Naples says—" The contraet 
for the Royal Theatres has been taken from Mr. Glossop, and given 
again to Barbaja, the former Impresario. Mr. G.'s engagement will 
expire at Easter, when we fear he will find his pockets lightened of 
several thousand ducats. He is now at Milan directing the Grand 
Theatre " Delia Scala," which, as I have before informed you, he 
has also undertaken ; hitherto he has given satisfaction there, but it 
is to be doubted whether the results will be to his advantage.— Bri-

The operatic piece of Maid Marian was pei formed last night, for 
what reason we know not, except to display the humors of the Church 
Militant, so admirably personified by Mr. C. Kemble. Miss Tree, 
who first represented the fair and lively Maid Marian, we have al- 
ready stated was taken ill on her late provincial tour, from over ex- 
ertion ; and when we remembered how much this piece was indebted 
to her exertions, we could hardly conceive it prudent to act it -with- 
out her. We must own, after last night's performance, we are con- 
firmed in this opinion ; although Miss Hammersley, who took the 
character, represented it with considerable talent : but theie is a 
something about Miss M. Tree, which has rendered her so popular, 
that there is hardly a young lady on the stage that can vie with In r 
in that respect, and it is not to be expected that Miss TrBe'b recent 
impression in this character could be so suddenly swept away, as to 
make the piece attractive with the name of one of less standing in. 
he place of hers. Mr. W. Farren waddled and gabbled through 
Baron Fitzwater in his usual successful manner ; he is, certainly, an 
extraordinary personage in his way. This Mr. W. Farren m prf>- 
pita personage off the stage, he looks like a beardless youth ; and 
on the stage he actually can play nothing but old men ! Amongst the 
other performers in this Play, Mr. Pearman is distinguished for his 
tasteful style of singing and attentive acting. We take the liberty of 
recommending the shelving of this drama until Miss M. Tree's re- 
covery. The Farce of The Poachers followed— it is well acted, and 
therefore takes effect. 



Ji&p^niar&ct €ljeattf& 

The three amusing pieces of last night, were 'Twonld Puzzle a. 
Conjuror, Sweethearts and J Fives, and Teazing made Easy. It is 
scarcely necessary to say that great entertainment was derived from 
these by a numerous audience. It has been asked why the author of 
Teazing made Easy, Exit by Mistake, &c. &c. does not continue to 
write fcr the stage ? The answer whieh we think might be given, is, 
that these dramatic pursuits were the chance results of leisure in his 
younger days, and having superior engagements he thinks no more of 
them. 



tHE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



The John Bull of Sunday last, commences its theatrical article 
in the following manner : — 

" THEATRES. 

" Our Correspondent, whose letter upon this subject we received as 
we receive every thing from him — with pleasure — understands less of 
us than we imagined. He complains of the rarity of oar theatrical 
criticisms. When we first thought of establishing this Paper, so per- 
fectly uninteresting and insignificant did the subject appear to us, 
that we did not intend ever to have given any • notices of the drama.' 
We altered our intention, it is true ; but still we are so clearly con- 
vinced of the total indifference with which plays, play-writers, players, 
and play-houses, are considered, if ever thought of in good society, 
that it is merely when our attention is called to the subject, and some- 
body for whose opinion we have a respect, makes an enjuiry about 
them, that we feel inclined to occupy any space of our Paper with 
any notice of them whatever." 

Really, Mr. Bull, this is indulging in a splenetic humor, at the 
expense of our reputation for understanding, to a degree beyond what 
we should have thought you would have ventured. What ! " good 
society/', then, does not include your correspondent, whom you hold 
in such high esteem, and f who complains of the rarity of your 
theatrical criticisms !" " Good society" never wastes a thought upon 
Shakspeare, Congreve, or Sheridan ! — " Good society" never va- 
lued the talents of a Garrick, a Kemble, a Siddons, or a Jordan ! 
The magnificent theatrical establishments of Drury Lane and Covent 
Garden, which are specially patronised and visited by the King, are 
never heard of in " good society V .That is. His Majesiy, accord- 
ing to Bull, is one of the vulgar a person out of the pale of u good 
society!" It is amusing to see Mr. Bull supporting his assertion, 
tbat nobody in " good society' bestows a thought on theatrical sub- 
jects, by stating that he never pays attention to them, except when 
his friends urge him to do so ! This is complimenting his friends in 
in a pretty awkward manner; they will, no doubt, feel inclined to 
return the favor in the same way on the first opportunity, by de- 
claring that persons of good sense never pay attention to balderdash 
about whiggery, but when their friend John Bull, devotes his time 
and paper to it.

Cogent <2arDcn Cijcatro. 

Sheridan's admirable Comedy of The School for Scandal, was 
performed last night. This sterling Comedy has rarely been better 
acted than it was on this occasion, taking it altogether. Mr. XV. Far- 
ren's Sir Peter Teazle is certainly a distinguished performance, al- 
though it has not the richness of style which Mr. Munden gave to it. 
Mr. Farren, in respect of figure, has the advantage of the retired 
veteran, for he looks more or the formal, cold old bachelor, than the 
Dthor : but he does not give such an interest to the character of Sir 
Peter as Mr. Munden did. The latter used to make us feel the knight 
a good-natured, warm-hearted old fellow, who although a little 
touchy, always seemed desirous speedily to remedy the effects of his 
passion by an act of generosity. Mr, Farren on the other hand, 
makes Sir Peter too crabbed — he has not good humor enough at his 
command to make a pleasing impression in favor of the character. — 
Still, be ably depicts its other leading points, and, ki particular, ma- 
naged the quarrel-scene and the screen-scene very well. 

Miss Chester played Lady Teazle. We could have wished her 
to have acted it a little less boisterously — with more discrimination. 
Much of what she uttered was unintelligible : howcrer, she got thro' 
the character very respectably. It is impossible to compare her with 
a Miss Farren, or a Mrs. Davison. Lady Teazle, notwithstanding 
a country education, is to be presumed from the nature of her con- 
versation, a young woman of some elegance and wit. Miss Chester 
does not sufficiently impress us with her having possession of those 
qualities. Mr. C. Kemble gave to the gay and liberal Charles all the 
pleasantry and manner of the accomplished man of fashion. He re- 
presents this character in an admirable style throughout ; there 
is no one on the stage that approaches his excellence in it. Joseph 
Surface was very ably represented by Mr. Cooper, who appeared 
to enter fully into the nature of the part, and gave a perfect picture 
of the hypocritical man of the world. He dressed the character with 
great propriety, justly deeming Joseph no puritan in the cut of his 
garments, or in manner, but merely a man, who, though moving in 
fashionable circles, still considered it his interest to support, in op- 
position to his nature, a character of extreme prudence, by way of 
attaining for himself an advantageous comparison with the follies of 
his thoughtless spendthrift brother Charles. Mr. Fawcett sup- 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER; 



ported his old character of Sir Oliver with all his wonted felicity.— 
We know no one that could do it better, Mr. Blanchard, Mi*. Jones, 
Mrs. Gibbs, and Mrs. Vining, represented the scandalizing coterie 
extremely well. Mr. Yates's Jloses was a very good piece of acting. 
Miss Love was a little out of her element as JMaria. We thought 
sve pereeired that arch smile of hers quivering about her mouth whilst 
she was endeavouring to look sorrowful, and squeeze out a tear. 

The comic piece of Charles the Second followed, in which Mr. C. 
Kk: : le acted the Merry Monarch with great humor. Mr. Jones, as 

'yd Rochester, put forth his pleasantry, and Mr. Fawcett's old 
ciearaan was admirably clone — The house was crowded in most parts. 

The Comedy of Rule a Wife and have a Wife is to be performed 
on Tuesday next, and on Thursday, the celebrated Der Frcischutz 
is to be brought forward. 



lloh Roy, Intrigue, and " Fish out of Water" were represented 
last night, for the Benefit of Mr. Melrose, who is a rising singer.— 
Mr. Bexxett played Rob with good erTeet. We have not space to 
state particulars. — There was a good house. 



Mr. Elliston is effecting much for the comfort 'of the visitors to 
Dniry-lane theatre. In addition to the entire removal of various 
nuisances in Vinegar-yard, this industrious Manager has projected 
considerable alterations and improvements in the front entrance, by 
which the access to the theatre will be made far more comfortable. 

A new Tragedy was read in the Green-room of Covent-garden thea- 
tre on last Friday, previously to the first rehearsal of it, in the pre- 
sence of the performers who are to support the several characters. — 
The piece was read by Mr. C. Kemble, with great spirit, and is said 
to have made a favorable impression on the theatrical Circle. 

The Universal Gazette of Lyons says, that the acting of Talma 
attracts to the great theatre there a truly extraordinary crowd of spec- 
tatort. According to the returns made to the authorities, more than 
10,000 strangers has arrived is Lyons to enjoy the display of the ta- 
lents of this great actor. At his last performance, the saloon was 
filled four hours before the rising of the curtain, and the receipts ex- 
ceeded 7,000 francs. British Press.

Daily Bills of the Play. 

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice.'' 

No. 893 Saturday Oct. 9, 1824. Price Id. 



Cotett €ar&cn Cfjcatre, 

That extraordinary Play, called Pride shall have a Fall, was acted 
last night for the second time this season. It is difficult to fix the 
character of this Comedv : — it is full of dramatic faults, and vet has 
traits of genius in it. Being acted with great spirit, it passess off 
pleasantly, when we resolve not to use our critical faculties. The 
Reverend George Croly, its author, has not obtained by it any high 
reputation as a dramatic author, whilst we suspect his clerical cha- 
racter has suffered not a little by devoting his time and attention to 
this pursuit. Let it be observed, we do not mean to say that writing 
for the stage is an employment unbecoming a good member of society , 
but we certainly mean to assert, that it is one which a clergyman had 
better leave to others who have less grave duties to perform. In our, 
opinion, the man who has devoted himself to minister to the officer, 
of religion, should never deviate into the regions of light imagination, 
with no other aim than to create mirth and profit by his comic in- 
vention. His mind must be indifferently prepared for the many so- 
lemn duties of a clergyman, when rising from the concatenation of 
his ludicrous scenes. Let us just suppose when the Reverend Gen= 
tlcman has completed the following stanza in his Play— - 

" For your bachelor's happy, 
And o'er his brown nappy 
He'll drink down the sun and the moon, bravo boys ;" 

the Parish Clerk taps at his closet-door, with " Sir — sir-— Mr. Croly ! 
the body waits." Up jumps our parson, and having hastily slipped 
on his canonicals, Hies to commit " dust to dust." Which, when 
done, he hastens back to his temple of the muses, and goes on — 

" But the husband's a wretch, 

That longs for Jack Ketch, 
And a rope's end can't ease him too soon, brave boys ; 
And a rope's end can't ease him too soon !" 

Then let us imagine the Reverend Gentleman called to pi ay at the 
bed of sickness — how provoking ! — just as he is consuming his mid- 
night oil over the following : — 

"Tor. Why you scoundrels, you renegadoes, you dogs in office— 
what's this for ? To be dragged out of my first sleep in my dungeon, 
to look in the faces of such a confoundedly ugly set of cannibals/' 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER 



And, then, on his return from preparing a poor soul for " another 
and a better world" — he sets to work again ; and clearing away his 
holy thoughts, proceeds through his work inspired by the comic muse. 

*' Major. A mighty handsome idea, by the glory of the Twentieth. 

" Col. Sirrah ! you must see that we arc officers. Take care. 

" Tor. Officers ! — aye, sheriff's officers. Honest housekeepers, with 
very rascally countenances. 

" Cor. Muffs and meerschaums ! — Very impudently conjectured. 

" Tor. Well then, parish officers ! Hunters of brats, beggars, 
and light bread. 

" JIIuj. (laughing) — Another guess for your life. 

'* Col. Insolence ! Sirrah, wo are in His Majesty's service. 

" Tor. Oh ! I understand — Custom-house Officers. Tubs, tobacco, 
and thermometers." 

This is, surely, all very much out of character ; and, therefore, 
we conceive Mr. Croly should either abandon the church or the 
stage. — There were many persons of fashion in the house. 



Sweethearts and Wives, the new Farce, and Paul and Virginia, 
were performed last night with all their former success. — The theatre 
was well attendel.

the Sheffield Theatre on the 25th instant. 

We are sorry to state that Mrs. Yates, late Miss Brunton, is 
much indisposed at Cheltenham ; her name was announced for an ap- 
pearance at the Brighton Theatre, where she was engaged for a week,

Cctoent <£at&cn €f)catr& 

Farquhar's lively Comedy of The Inconstant was acted on Sa- 
turday night for the second time this season. It is a Play that re- 
quires considerable talent in the representatives of the leading cha- 
racters to render them in any degree effective. The parts of Old and 
Young Mirabel, of Durutete, of Bizarre, and of Oriana, would be 
lost in the hands of second-rate actors. There is so much bye-play 
necessary that an indirl'erent conception of the characters, and the 
least defect in the nlling-up, in many instances would, we think, if 
badly acted, create much disgust. The ease and elegance of manner 
with which Mr. C. Kemble exhibits the gaiety and carelessness of /he 
inconstant lover of Oriana, gives ns a perfect idea of the character, 
without offending in any way our sense of propriety. His points arc 
made as if they arose naturally, without the least indication of their 
being in, fact the result of art. It is this power which constitutes a 
great actor ; and he who is unable to attain it, had better give up 
the profession if he cannot endure a second-rate reputation. Mr. W. 
Farren's Old Mirabel is a very good performance. Durutete, by 
Mr, Jones, was humorously acted : although it is a hard task for this 
gentleman to appear awkward or very diffident. Indeed, be appeared 
rather to assume than be really the unpractised character in society 
the author jhas drawn. The scone between him and Mrs. Chatter- 
ley, who represented Bizarre admirably, where she discovers and 
plagues him, was, however, not badly done, and created much mirth. 
Yet, his manner and his bad dancing ill-concealed that he could both 
walk, talk, and dance in a superior style. We must not omit to no- 
tice the scene between Bizarre and Young *M\rabel, where he defeats 
the lady's scolding intentions with the aid of Virgil. Mrs. Chatter- 
ley and Mr. C. Kemble played this with uncommon spirit and effect, 
and were loudly applauded. The vexation and passion of the former, 
and the ironical coolness of the latter, were admirable efforts of the 
art. Wc ought also, particularly, to remark on the acting of Mr. 
Kemble in the scene with the ruffians, which was finely done. We 
think Miss Joxes a very clever lady ; and she did Oriana in many 
respects well ; yet it is not a character that suits her talent so well as 
some others of a more lively nature. Miss Foote or Miss S. Booth 
were well calculated for this part, which requires a quiet, interesting 
solicitude of manner, to give it full effect. Mr. Baker represented 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER: 



Dugard very appropriately ; but might we suggest to him, that were 
he not to suspend his arms with the back of his hands foremost, he 
would appear much more graceful on the stage. This Comedy, al- 
together, was so effective, that it is to be repeated to-morrow night. 

The Irish Tutor, and The Tale of Mystery t followed, and gave 
the highest satisfaction. 

Mr. C. Kemble plays Octavian this evening, 

Mr. Young is engaged here, and will make his first appearance on 
Wednesday next, in Sir Pertindz MdcBycophant , in Macklin's Co- 
medy of The Man of the fVbrld. 



Rob Roy was repeated here on Saturday night. On this occasion 
Mr. Cooper acted Rob, and with much effect. His vigorous style is 
well suited to this energetic character. Mr. Melrose sang with taste 
in Francis Osbaldistone, and Mr. Liston's Baillie Jarvie, was, as 
usual, highly amusing. Madame Veitris makes a delightful Diana 
Vernon. Mrs. Glover was not a little out of her proper line in 
Helen Macgregor. The new Farce and Intrigue, were afterwards 
excellently acted. 

Mr. Dowton appears here to-morrow night, as Sir John Falstqff, 
for the Benefit of Madame Vestris. 

Miss Kelly is engaged here, and will make her first appearance 
on Saturday next. 

The Adelphi Theatre Opens on Thursday next, With a new grand 
Spectacle. 

The opening of Drury Lane theatre is postponed to the 23d or 25th 
of this month, on which occasion a magnificent spectacle, founded on 
the tale of the Enchanted Horse, from the Arabian Night's Enter- 
iainmmts, will be produced, supported by Due row and his equestrian 
troop. 

Mrs. W. West has declinrd renewing her engagement at Drury Lane 
in consequence of her husband's services having been rejected. She 
succeeds Miss Chester at the Haymarket Theatre, where she is an- 
nounced to appear this Evening as JLydia Languish.

" Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice." 

Tuesday ', Oct 12, 1824* Price Id. 



Cotant €atDca 3H)e&tte. 

Colman's Play of Sfl&e Mountaineers was represented last night. — 
This drama, with its twofold plot, is a compound of insipidity and 
florid dialogue. The story of Zoraydas abandonment of her father, 
(lie moor Bulcazim Muleij, to embrace Christianity in the person of 
a Spanish gallant, is extremely weak, and has no portion of interest 
in it : and the loves of Agnes and Sadi is common-place. The ro- 
mance of Octavian the deranged wanderer of the Cordilleras, is taken 
from the history of Don Quixotic, and has a considerable share of 
interest. about it ; but. then, it is of such short duration — co broken in 
upon by the Moorish bombast, and the silly courting-scenes of Sadi 
and Jfgnes, that it is greatly weakened. In short, we wade through 
a vast deal of tiresome matter in order to reach the good stuff, Tlu 
only striking character on which the imagination can be at all fixed, 
is that of Octavian. This was admirably acted by Mr. C. Kemblle, 
who powerfully depicted the unseated reason, and overwhelming pas- 
sion of love, of the unhappy hero. Nothing could surpass the eiTect of 
the following speech : — 

" Oct. Thou hast shot lightning through me ! — 
Art thou—stay i 

That sound was thrilling music ! Floranthe ! 
I thought not e'en the magic of thy name 
Could make a heart, so long benumb'd with misery, 
Leap as 'twould burst its prison.- — Do not mock me ; 
If thou dost juggle, now, I'll tear thee — Hold ! 
Aye, I remember ; — and as I peruse thee, 
Past times rush in upon me, with thy face ; 
And many a thought of happiness, gone by, 
Doth flash across my brain. Let me not wander. 
Give me thy band, 1 toque. — I do know thy errand , 
And 'tis of import, when thou journey'st, thus. 
The trackless desart to seek sorrow out. 
Thou comest to tell me. my Floranthe's dead : — 
But we will meet again, sweet ! — I will back, 
With thee, old honesty ; and lay me down, 
Heart-broke at last, beside her shrouded corse, 
Ki;i& her cold cheek, then fly to her in heaven !" 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER: 



The interview with Florantke wa9 equally effective, and the feel- 
ings of the audience were in many instances affected to tears when he 
exclaimed — 

" Oct. What art thou ? — speak that face — yet this attire — 

Floranthc ! — No — it cannot — Oh ; good heaven !j 
V«x not a poor weak creature thus ! Floranthe ? 
How my sight thickens — Speak — *' 

" Flor. Octavian !" 

" Oct. That voice ! — It is — So long too — Let me clasp thee — H 

" (Runs to meet her — staggers — and falls on his face)" 

Miss F. H. Kelly, who acted Floranthe in the sweetest manner, 
assisted to render this seene so affecting. The other characters were 
pretty well supported. Miss Lacy, who looked very graceful as 
Zoruyda, and Miss Love, Mr. Dtruset, Mr. Connor, and Mr. 
Blanchard, in particular, received marks of favor from a rather nu- 
merous audience. 



This lively theatre gave us The Rivals, last night, in which the 
novelty was Mrs. W. West's first appearance here, in the character 
of Lydia Languish. She was received with the most animated ap- 
plause, which this amiable lady, and admirable actress amply me- 
rits. The other pieces were Intrigue and Jlnimal Magnetism, which 
kept the audience in loud laughter. 

Sadler's Wells — The season here is drawing very near to a close, 
having received during its present campaign that patronage and sup- 
port the excellence of the performances generally entitled it to. To- 
morrow evening we observe is devoted to the Benefit of Mr. J. S. 
Grimaldi, and from the strength and combination of talent contained 
in his bill of fare, we have no doubt but a bumper will be the result. 
We have also witnessed a full announcement for Monday next, for the 
Benefit of the indefatigable stage-manager, Mr. Gallott, whose ex- 
ertions throughout the season in the promotion of amusement for the 
public, is deserving every support. Mr. Dayus, the worthy treasurer, 
also takes his Benefit on the same evening, and, if attention and po- 
liteness to the frequenters of Sadler's Wells, are claims on their pa- 
tronage, there is no doubt but an overflow will be his reward.

No. 896 Wednesday, Oct, 13, 1824. Price Id. 

Cotoent <2ar&fn €{jcatre» 

The excellent manner in whfch The Inconstant has been acted here 
this season, has drawn much attention, and a numerous audience has' 
marked its performances General admiration Us bestowed on Mr. C* 
Kemble's Young Mirabel, who, really, appears to have brought his 
talents still more forward by the most spirited exertions. This Thea- 
tre having been assailed by a lamentable chancery suit, a sort of cloud 
is thought to envelope it ; and Mr. Kemble and the other Managers 
may feel, under the circumstances, a generous ardour to clear away 
the mists of this legal prejudice, and by every exertion to bring forth 
their splendid Establishment triumphantly through the obscuring fogs 
of Lincoln's-Jnn Hall. 

The theatrical critic in last night's Globe and Traveller, (which by 
the bye is an amusing Paper) speaking of the performance of The 
Mountaineers, at Covent Garden Theatre, says — 4t Sadi retired from 
the stage with Jack Bannister, and [Mr. Duruset, though he sang 
the songs respectably, has not succeeded in inducing him to return." 
We know that this character is out of Mr. Duruset's line, but tie 
Globe and Traveller critic, we presume, has 'never seen Mr. Ha r ley 
in the part. We can assure him that that gentleman gives us Sadi as 
humorously as * Jack Bannister," Talking of " Jack Bannister," 
(whom the play-goers of a few years back will never forget) — we 
had some time ago the pleasure of seeing him quite well, except of 
that tenderness of toe which the villainous gout has inflicted on him. 
Mr. Bannister after a brilliant theatrical career, wisely retired into 
private life with ample means, and a happy memory of him impressed 
on the public mind. He still, we hear, lives loving and beloved in 
the bosom of his friends and family ; giving an additional proof that 
the stage is, no more than other pursuits of life, a contaminator of 
the heart or of the mind, when there is an original rectitude of feeling 
and principle. 



Madame Vestris had her Benefit here last night ; and it was a 
very good one. Mr. Dowton appeared on the occasion as Sir John 
Falstaff, in The Merry Wives of Windsor, and was received with 
shouts of applause. 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



Adhlphi Theatre. — During the recess this Theatre has undergone 
considerable alterations and improvements. A dress-circle has been 
formed, and the whole has been entirely re-decorated in rather a no- 
vel and tasteful manner ; the gilt ornaments to the front of the boxes 
are laid on a ground composed of rose-colour and white stripes, giving 
it a pleasing appearance of lightness and elegance. The private boxes 
are lined with rich crimson flock paper, with silk draperies to cor- 
respond. The proscenium gives the appearance of a variegated fan, 
most richly embossed, with burnished gold) and the scenery is equally 
superb. The orchestra has been enlarged, sufficiently to contain a 
.Band of upwards of forty performers, it being the intention of the 
.proprietors to open with a new musical piece, from which they have 
great expectations, and on. which no expense hi\s been spared. 

Surrey. — Last night this theatre was the scene of contention be- 
tween the management and the audience, owing to the non-appearance 
of Mon-s. Cline, the French Hercules, who was announced in the bills 
to display his wonderful powers of balancing. While the band were 
plaving the Overture to Der Freisckntz, (the afterpiece) the first in- 
dications of a, storm were perceptible, which on the rising of the 
curtain, burst forth' with tremendous fury. It appeared from the 
statement of the Manager, who then came forwaad, that Mr. Cline 
was engaged by .Mr. Williams only, for his Benefit the preceding 
evening, and he hoped therefore that the entertainments might bo 
'permitted to proceed. The uproar encreased — the Manager re- 
appeared,and proposed that M. Cline should go through his perform- 
ances — this produced tranquility ; but eventually it was found M. 
Cline demanded payment instanter — this was rejected by the Mana- 
ger, who again appealed— uproar recommenced ; huh the majority 
was in. favor of the Manager, and the piece then proceeded. 

Miss Foote. — It would appear that this lady has been not very well 
treated by a Mr. Haines, a wealthy young man, who, it is said, has 
twice appointed a time for their nuptials, and as often, on some fri- 
volous pretence, disappointed her. We have heard many stoiies of 
this business, which may or may not be true. Amongst them, that 
the gentleman asserted he never in his sober senses dreamt of making 
her his wife — that several thousand pounds had been got out of him 
by the lady's father ; and that, in short, he was sick and tired of the 
whole business, and was compelled to shut his doors against all her 
family, who besieged him with most, unwearied industry. Kcport says 
Miss 1'oote is to bring the matter before a Jury.

** Nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice."

Cedent <2ai*&en Cljcatre. 

That eminent actor, Mr. Young, made his first appearance for the 
season last night, as Sir Pertinaz Jllacsycophant. One might have 
supposed that he would have selected a tragic character on the occasion, 
but, the fact is, that his talent for a certain line in comedy lias fully 
equalled, if not surpassed, his qualifications fo»- tragedy. Mr. Young 
is the finest declaimer on the stage ; he possesses a naanly and im- 
posing person and manner ; his judgment is excellent, and he is dis- 
tinguished for taste. He, therefore, always gives peculiar force to 
eneigetic parts, and marks the niceties of character with much effect. 
Besides, he has a fine satirical turn of humor, which in Sir Pertinaos 
is frequently called forth with great felicity. Mr. Young, on his voice 
being heard without, was greeted with a very cordial welcome. He 
acted Sir Pertinaco, throughout, in an admirable manner, and with 
almost all the perfection of dialect which a native of Scotia might be 
expected to exhibit. Mr. Cooper played Egerion in a very gentle- 
manly style ; and gave every importance to the character which it is 
susceptible of. The hady Rodolpha Lumbercourt of Mrs. Chatter- 
ley is clever, but rather laboured in some parts. Mr. Bartley 
looked and acted the von vivant, careless English nobleman extremely 
well. Mr. Mason represented Sidney. — Still, do we intreat of this 
young gentleman to get rid of that formal, important air which he 
continually assumes. He acts every thing as if it was a grand, first- 
rate tragic character he had in hand; and thus, really, brings on 
himself much harsh ridicule. Why will he not resolve hir.isielf into 
Ms character ? — Why not follow nature? He is possessed of talent ; 
but we are sure he never will appear to advantage in any character 
which requires an unbending of the whole manner : his voice also is 
much against him ; but, we think, notwithstanding our observations, 
that there is considerable improvement this season in his acting. 



The Comedy of The Road to \ 

The character of Old JJornion was supported b> Mr >. 
It was an able performance, but very unlike that of our retired fa- 
vorite Mr. Mcnden, in the same part, which was always exclusively 
his own. Mr, Farren wants ilie power of moving us with paternal

affection, breaking out through offended feeling at the extravagancies 
of his darling son. With this defect, it cannot be said to have filled 
the character appropriately ; although the rity of an audience 

who are no critics^ will, no: doubt, acted the part very 

finely. 

Mrs. Glover appeared as the Widow Warren, for the first time. 
Since the. days of Mrs. Mattocks, the original Widow, we do not re- 
collect to have seen this character so much to our liking. Mrs. West, 
as Sophia, was very interesting. Mr. Viking's Young Dornton is a 
very spirited piece of acting, and does him great credit. Mr. Har- 
ley's Goldfinch was very good and true to nature. The whole Play 
was well performed, and gave gr#at satisfaction. 



(From a Correspondent.) 

English Opera-House. — The performances at this Theatre, on 
Monday evening, for the Benefit of the Philantrophlc Society, was 
very fashionably attended. The Play of The Rivals was very respect- 
ably performed. Sir Anthony Absolute was spirited, and Mr. JAMes 
had evidently taken great pains with the part. Captain Absolute was 
performed by Mr. Harrold ; we remember seeing this gentleman in 
subordinate characters at Drury Lane Theatre last season, and we 
were much surprised at witnessing his spirited represensation of the 
Captain ; he was easy, bold, and elegant, and was uncommonly well 
drsssed. Faulkland was performed in a ve#y gentlemanly manner by 
Mr. Holland. Bob Acres was very entertaining in the last scene ; 
he evidently did not understand the earlier ones ; he certainly is a 
most industrious collector of * gag." But what shall we say of 
David, he was the best acted character in the Play, and we only re- 
gretted we did not see more of him.— -This gentleman certainly pos- 
sesses very great talent. The ladies supported their characters with 
very great ability. The evening's entertainment was much too long. 

«*■ 

Adelphi Theatre. — The spirited and highly successful proprietors 
of this establishment, commence their winter career this evening, 
with a new melo-drama of the Germ&n school. We have heard the 
scenery, dresses, &c. spoken of in the highest terms of approbation. 
The bills too announce, as we stated yesterday, an increase of num- 
bers in the vocal and instrumental departments, worthy of either of 
the great houses. Considerable alterations have been effected in va- 
rious parts of the Theatre, with a view to the comfort of the au- 
dience. The salle has been re-decorated in a most pleasing and ele- 
gant style of novelty.— We heartily wish a continuation of their usual 
prosperity.

Cotoent <£attscn €!jeatm , . 

The great success which the celebrated piece of Der Freischutz^ 
met with at the English Opera-House, had induced the managers of 
this theatre to produce it in the roost perfect manner. Accordingly, 
a new translation and adaptation of it was made, and the Opera was 
presented last night for the first time, At an early hour the house 
was crowded in every part ; and every one seemed anxious to hear the 
hcautifiil music of Weber executed in one of the finest theatres in 
the world. The orchestra had been enlarged for the occasion, and 
many persons added to the choir of the establishment. -All these 
preparations, and all the eager curiosity of the public, happily proved 
not to have been thrown away. Never was the effect of beautiful and 
grand music more delightfully produced than in numerous instances on 
this occasion. The overture* was rapturously encored, and so was the 
following famous hunting-chorus at the end of the piece : — 

What joys are the life of a hunter surrounding, 
For whom foams so richly the cup of delight ! 
With rifle and horn, through the broad forest bounding, 
Or stretch'd in its shade, by the streamlet so bright, 
How glorious to see the fleet stag vainly flying, 
The hound in the greenwood, the hawk in the air : 
The pastime of princes; all others outvying, 
No sport upon earth with the chase can compare. 
Yoho, tra la la ! &c. 

Not even with day is the hunter's sport ended— 
The midnight to him is as dear as the noon ; 
For when the bright sun in the west has descended, 
To light him uprises his lady the moon ; 
By her yellow beam led, through the deepest glens hieing, 
The wolf and the wild boar he tracks to the lair , 
The pastime of princes, all others outvying, 
No sport upon earth with the chase can compare. 
Yoho, tra la la ! &c. 

The singing by Miss Paton, as Bertha, was excellent : tie long 
scena in the second act, was given by her with a power, a sweetness, 
and brilliancy of tone, that commanded the admiration and loud ap- 
plauses of the whole audience. Miss Love, as Lina, also sang with 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER! 

t"- - - - i - i i i j — — — ' — . — "* ' • --- pjiji&t&m -'■ 



her accustomed talent; and Mr. Pearman, as fVilhelm, gave liis 
songs with all the taste for which he is so conspicuous. Mr. Isaacs 
sang the Bacchanalian song very well, and was encored amidst some 
opposition. The chorusses were excellently performed ; and the whole 
was a vocal and instrumental treat of the finest kind. With respect 
to the drama itself ; we think the present version lias more the air 
and effect of opera than the piece produced at the English Opera- 
Housc ; which latter was more melo-dramatic in its arrangement. — 
The most material alteration in the plot of the present piece, is, that 
the character named Killian is made the medium Caspar employs in 
assisting to cast the balls, and to fire the seventh bullet, which he 
hopes the daemon will direct to the heart that repelled him and beats 
for JFilhelm — the heart of Bertha. Altogether, the Der Freischutz 
of this theatre is a most interesting piece The famous Incantation- 
scene was produced with a terrific effect surpassing conception : it is 
impossible to convey an idea of this scene ; it represented the gloom 
of midnight hanging over the Wolf's Glen — the moon eclipsed — the 
magic circle formed — the wind's hollow sound breathing through the 
forest — the spirit, invoked, appealing in the opening rock enveloped 
in flames — the casting of each buliet, attended by the chorus-howling 
of daemons and noises resembling the discharge of artillery and fire- 
arms — the skeleton chase in the sky — the assemblage of frightful 
monsters creeping and in the air — a chariot of fire bearing death a 
skeleton of flame — nature herself overthrown, amidst the war of ele- 
ments, until the whole presented immeasurable discord, and all the 
burning glory of the destroying dcemon ! This scene closed amidst 
the cheers of the audience ; and at the termination of this romantic 
Opera, the most decided and enthusiastic applauses were bestowed on 
the \thole. 



The performances here last night were attended by a crowded and 
delighted audience. 

Adelphi Theatre. — The lateness of the hour at which the curtain 
fell prevents our giving a detailed critique on Valmondi. We can 
merely state that the scenery is splendid, and highly picturesque, the 
decorations and dresses rich and appropriate. — Much of the music 
met with approbation. Mr. Wrench, after a neat apology for some 
inaccuracies of the representation, gave out the melo-drama for re- 
petition amidst unmixed applause. We shall, on a future occasion, 
report upon it. 

Olympic. — Last night this little Theatre was numerously attended. 
The amusing piece of Jill at Coventry went CiT with its usual ap- 
plause, and was followed by Hydrophobia, in which there is some 
pretty dancing. The Exeter Mcil concluded the evening's perform- 
ances, and kept the audience in continual laughter, and the various 
parts were tolerably performed.

The second performance of Der Freischutx here, last night, was 
os successful as on the first performance, and the music gave the 
highest delight to a numerous and genteel audience. It may be re- 
marked, of Weber, that he does not succeed so fully in the light 
style of composition,as in that intended to express sentiment and deep 
impressions. There is a Cathedral strain in most of the music of this 
Opera, and, therefore, some degree of monotonous effect is produced. 
Yet, it communicates a feeling so entirely congenial with the tendency 
of this romantic drama, that the attention is more fixed on the passing 
scene this heightened, than on critical distinctions. The Overture 
and several of the other pieces of music were encored. A great de- 
sire to see this Opera is evi*ced in all quarters ; and the splendid and 
ingenious manner in which it has been brought forth here, adds to the 
general attractions of the music, &c. The Incantation-scene is the 
most powerfully effective display of combined horrors that ever was 
beheld on the stage. It again drew forth the loudest approbation 
from all quarters of the house. 

After the Opera, the Farce of The Poachers was acted, aid pro- 
duced much laughter. We cannot say that it is altogether so pure 
a piece as we should wish to see. 



This charming little Theatre is determined to stand its ground 
firmly. Its late reinforcements are powerful ; and it is supposed will 
hold out — its attractions, until November Is somewhat advanced. — 
Madame Vestris took her leave last night in JUrs. Ford ; and in 
Laura, in Sweethearts and Wives. — She goes to Dublin, we hear. 

The cleverest Miss Kelly of all the Miss Kellys, makes her first 
appearance here this evening. — She is a host in herself. 



Drury Lane Theatre — We find that the several improvements 

being nearly completed, and the whole of the interior of this fine 

! Theatre having been re-erobellished, it will open on Saturday, the 

23rd instant , and the performers aie summoned to attend in the 

green-room, on Monday next, the 18th, at II precisely.

Apelphi. The second performance of Valmondi, last night, was 

attended with eminent success. This Theatre is likely to reap a good 
harvest from it. The afterpiece of Wo Dinner Yet, is very laughable. 

Sinclair will resume his situation at Covent-garden theatre in a 
day or two. His theatrical tour in Scotland has been eminently suc- 
cessful, both as to fame and its more solid accompaniment. He is to 
make his first appearance, we understand in a new Opera. 

Miss Foote.— The following, respecting the above-named charming 
and accomplished actress, we have received from a Correspondent, in 
whose veracity we believe we may place perfect reliance ; — 

" This young lady, if report be true, will have cause to say, with 

an able author, % 

' Oh ! that mine enemies would write a book. 

" It was not the intention of the friends of Miss Foote to say one 
word upon the extraordinary conduct of Mr. Hayne, but wait pa- 
tiently the result of her appeal to the Court of Kind's Bench. Since, 
however, the wiseacres in the play of that gentleman have trumpeted 
throutfh'the London, and even Provincial Papers, a garbled and un- 
true statement, and having besides insinuated that he had not intended 
to marry the young ladv, it will suffice for the present to state-- 
That Mr. Hayne directed (and his Solicitors approved on his part) 
the rough draft of the settlements to be made on his intended bride ; 
that he fixed the day to be married ; that he caused the bridesmaid 
to be brought a distance of 200 miles, and to be introduced to him ; 
that he purchased and tried on the wedding ring, and, in his own 
proper person, procured at Doctors' Commons the license. 

" This statement will be sufficient for the present to relieve the 
minds of Miss Foote's friends. 

" At the trial a recital of facts, demonstrating one of the most 
aggravated cases of " breach of promise" will be brought forward 
that has ever occurred in a Court of Justice. 

" Mr. Hayne is invited to contradict one iota of this statement if 

* Thus bad begins, but worse remains behind. , — Hamlet. 
<• The paragraph announcing the day for celebrating the marriage 
of Miss Foote with Mr. Hayne, we have authority to state, was in- 
serted at the express and earnest desire of Mr. Hayne. We have the 
same authority to add, that neither Miss Foote, nor any friends at 
her suggestion, have written, or caused to be inserted, one line in any 
Newspaper:' —(British Press.)

On Saturday, Der Freischutz was performed to a very crowded au- 
dience. We think wo never heard Miss Paton in finer voice: she 
gave all her songs, and particularly the scena in the second act, in a 
-style that delighted in the highest degree. The utuust silence pre- 
vailed in parts where she reduced the note with a clear and delicate 
expression, and that silence was only broken by the buzz of appro- 
bation which terminated in loud applause. The Overture, and tho 
Hunting-chorus in the last scene, were rapturously encored ; and the 
famous Incantation-scene was managed in the most appalling manner. 
The John Bull of yesterday says, " we are sick of the very name of 
Der Freischutz," and so they may be if they have gone the rounds 
of the various Theatres where it has been bi ought out. Its popularity 
is, however, thus amply proved, by the eagerness every Manager has 
shewn to produce it. In this vast metropolis there are stiil many 
thousands of persons who have not yet beheld it. 



In the amusing Comedy of The Road to Ruin, on Saturday night, 
Old Dornton was acted by Mr. Dowton with much ability, although 
in a very different style from that of the retired favorite, Mr. Mun- 
den. On this occasion, Miss Kelly made her first appearance on 
these boards in the character of Sophia: need we say, she was re- 
ceived with unbounded applause ? In fact, Miss Kelly has talents 
that have long been so fully appreciated by the public, that it is mat- 
ter of much regret, we do not find her again attached to one of our 
great winter Theatres Some reasons are said to exist for this non- 
engagement there, which we trust may be removed. But let us be 
pleased while we may — we have her at the " Little Theatre ;" and 
there let every one go and see her. She played Nell, in The Deril to 
Pay, in the most humorous style, to Mr. Dowton's laughable Jobson. 
The house was excellently attended. 

Adelphi. — Valmondi, the new piece just produced here, is one of 
the most interesting dramatic Romances of its kind we ever saw ; and 
is uncommonly well acted in its chief parts. It is founded on the fa- 
mous story of St. Leon, a man gifted with a fatal durability of ex- 
istence, and abounds with striking incidents.— The house has beea 
crowded every night since it opened. 



THEATftTCAL OBSERVER' 



Mtt. HAYNE and MISS FOOTE. 

Mr. Hayne has sent the following Letter to the Press. 

" Sir, — It never was my intention to have troubled the public with 
any circumstances which have taken place between Miss Foote and 
myself, had I not felt something was due to truth in the contradiction 
of those paragraphs, which made it necessary my Attorney should do, 
in your columns of yesterday. There I hoped the matter would have 
rested, until the action Miss Foote has thought proper to commence, 
developed every thing ; but the challenge which appears in your paper 
of this morning, " inviting me to contradict one iota of the ^statement 
if I dare," compels me reluctantly to put the public in possession of 
facts, which I think will justify my conduct — intending to leave my 
power of contradicting such statements to the proper time and place. 
.Delicacy to the lady would almost silence me, did I not feel and know 
it is so little attended to by, or heeded on her part. 

But to the point: — I was not aware, when I made a proposal to 
Miss Foote, that she had ever been under the protection of Colonel 
Berkeley — her father and mother having always upheld, (and I be- 
lieved) her to be a paragon of virtue ; and had not Colonel Berkeley, 
in the latter end of June last, in the presence of James MAxse, Esq. 
(as the Colonel's friend) and Thomas Best, Esq. (as my friend) 
owned her having had children by him, the youngest then not a month 
old, I should have been in ignorance of the facts, until too late to 
retrieve my happiness. 

If I were to make every other circumstance public at this moment, 
I should be anticipating the defence I have at that trial, u where a 
recital of facts, demonstrating one of the most aggravated cases of 
breach of promise will be brought forward." 

" My withers are unwrung — " 

Now a word for Mr. Foote — who, under the plea of purchasing a 
Paymastership, borrowed the sum of one thousand one hundred and 
fifty pounds from me ; may I ask him (if he is in this country) to 
what purpose it has been appropriated? — being given to understand 
that the fear of being " called upon to return it," has induced him to 
make a continental tour. 

The mention of the above facts " out of the niany," will, I trust, 
induce, the public to suspend their further opinion, until the appeal 
made to the Court of King's Bench is decided. And in thus intruding 
upon their notice, I cannot but congratulate myself at my escape. 

I am, Sir, your obedient humble Servant, 

Joseph Hayne. 
2S, Upper Grosvenor Square, Friday, Oct. 15. 

Miss Foote's Solicitor, in reply to the above, declares that the 
proposal of marriage were made by Mr. Hayne, after the knowledge 
of the circumstance he alludes to.

Again Der Freischutz drew a most numerous and genteel audience, 
who seemed highly gratified with the admirable music, and the ge- 
neral effect of the piece. Whilst this attraction continues in the 
same degree, it is scarcely to be expected that the Managers will pre- 
sent any of their other novelties ; indeed, even that great actor, Mr. 
Young, has been put into the corps de reserve by the Black Hunts- 
man of Bohemia, and we imagine he will not be called into action, 
unless on some Monday night, after the race of the above dark hero 
is nearly over. 

The Pantomime still has its charms for a certain class, who ad- 
mire the feats of Harlequin above every thing, because his practical 
jokes suit their comprehension and taste exactly. 



Mr. Dowton performed Doctor Canlwell here last night with all 
his wonted effect. It is a character that highly disgusts, whilst we 
cannot help being pleased with the actor, who like Mr. Dowton fills 
it with such amusing reality of manner. If this Play is useful in cor- 
recting a taste for fanaticism, it at the same time is very likely to 
create a prejudice against every display of religious sentiment ; and. 
all who utter a word of that nature are liable to meet more suspicion 
of hypocrisy than they, perhaps, merit. Mr. Liston convulsed the 
audience by his comic representation of the fanatic Maw-worm ; and 
the other characters were very ably supported. 

In Sweethearts and f fives, we had Miss Kelly in the character 
of Laura, which she represented extremely well ; although we will 
not say that in the vocal department she shines very brightly- There 
was much laughter at Mr. Liston's Bitty Lackaday of course. — The 
house was well attended. 

Drury Lane. — The external improvements being nearly completed, 
and the whole of the interior having been re-embeliished. this Theatre 
will open on Saturday next, Oct. 23, 1824, with a Comedy, and other 
entertainments. Weber's celebrated and popular Opera of Der 
Freischutz, will be produced at this Theatre in the course of the 
next week. — The whole of the music will be given, and will be sung 
by the respective characters as when originally produced at Berlin. 
A new melp-dramatic Tale of Enchantment, in which will be intro- 
duced Mons. Ducrow and his Equestrian Troop, ( who are engaged 
for a few weeks only) will be produced on Monday next. Monsieur 
Hulltnt and his Pupils are engaged for a limited period, and will ap- 
pear in a new Divcrtisemcnt on Saturday next. 



THEATRICAL OBSERVER* 



At)ELPHi. — Another very crowded audience was greatlj interested 
last night with Valmondi ; or, the Unhallowed Sepulchre. It, really, 
does great credit to the management. 

Olympic. — One of the chief attractions here is the engaging and 
clever Miss Glover, (daughter of our favorite Mrs, Glover.) The 
performances are also of a nature to entertain. 

Incledon's Farewell.— On Friday last the Southampton Theatre 
was crowded, in consequence of as announcement that the above once 
celebrated singer was to sing four of his most popular songs, and to 
take leave of the stage in a short address. It is not generally known 
that Incledon made his$e#«£at Southampton exactly forty years ago. 
The late Mr. De Veulle hearing him sing a song at a public-house, 
was so much struck with his extraordinary powers, that he introduced, 
him to his Theatre. He immediately received the warmest tribute of 
admiration, and rapidly rose into fame. The songs he selected on 
this occasion were, * Black-eyed Susan," " Death of Admiral Ben- 
bow," " Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled," the celebrated duct of 
" All's Well," with Mr. Boltox, and " Then farewell my trim-built 
Wherry." To criticise the singing of a mail upwards of sixty, who 
lias undergone the hardships he has, would be ridiculous; that wasi 
not the thing looked for — suffice it to say, his singing shewed what he 
once could do. There was, however, something very affecting, and 
perhaps pleasing, in tha contrast (in the duet) between his voice 
quivering, and all in want of breath to fill it, yet still manly and 
poweiful, and Mr. Bolton's, youthful and full of cadence and exe- 
cution. It is unnecessary to say that he w r as most rapturously ap- 
plauded, and the duet was encored. After the last song he addressed 
the audience nearly as follows: — " Ladies and Gentleman, — It is with 
the sinccrest feelings of gratitude that I am capable of, that I stand 
before you this evening to return you my most heart-felt thanks for 
the distinguished patronage you have ever conferred on me. In this 
town, and on these boards, I first appeared as a singer: and the en- 
couragement I then received from you has proved, I may say, my 
passport to fame. Ladies and Gentlemen, since that period I have 
passed through many vicissitudes — I have served his Majesty in many 
engagements — there is not a ship in the navy, nor are there many 
towns in the country, that I have not sung in ; but still your early 
liberality has never been effaced from my memory. It is now six years 
ago since I left the stage, but it has always been my wish to appear 
once more before yoi;. Ladies and Gentlemen, age, sickness, and in- 
firmities have altered me much from what I once was , but I have al- 
ways done my best to please my kindest patrons, and I repeat it, 
Ladies and Gentlemen, while I live I shall never forget the support 
and encouragement I have received from the inhabitants of South- 
ampton." — A tremendous burst of applause followed, and the veteran 
retired from the stage forever. — Globe and Traveller.

Cofccnt (fiarticn €l)eatr& 

Tiihre was another numerous audience here last night, to see Der 
Freischutz, and the petite Comedy of Charles the Second. The usual 
encores took place in the former; and in the latter, we had the plea- 
sure of seeing the charming Miss M. Thee make her first appearance 
for the season, in her former character of JUary. This young lady 
merits the high favor she enjoys, not only on account of her excellent 
professional talents, bat because she is really amiable and well-con- 
ducted.' She can enter the green-room without being sneered at as 
the mistress of any lordling, colonel, or heavy-pursued puppy. She, 
as far as her natural modesty will permit, can boldly face an audience 
without dreading any degrading observations, or parallels with the 
wantons of the lobbies. Would to heaven ! every lady of the green- 
room could say the same ! It is lamentable that there should exist 
amongst the female members of the theatrical profession, so many 
instances of loose conduct. This is, we are convinced, greatly owing 
to the want of some rigid system in regard to the management of the 
green-rooms. Perhaps, it would not be very easy to exclude certain 
fashionables who frequent these places for obvious purposes ; but it 
is perfectly in the power of the ladies themselves to regulate their 
conduct by such prudent principles, as to compel these men to treat 
them with the same deference that would be demanded in the drawing 
room of a respectable family Every lady of the green-room should 
shew more spirit and senRe of what becomes them, than to allow a 
set of unprincipled fellows to hold them in the light of those wretched 
tricked-out creatures who parade the saloon for hire. Shame ! double 
shame, must fall on the head of her who having already ample means 
derived from a liberal profession, yields herself up a prey to any man 
of wealth or title, for the baubles he may bestow. We have been 
called on to insert in our Paper a list of the names, not only of such 
members of the theatrical corps as have flagrantly devoted themselves 
to vice, but of those who cultivate the arts of seduction in the green- 
room. It would be a painful task for us ; and nothing but a sense of 
aa increasing evil, will induce us to meet the desire expressed. It has 
never been our aim to hand any one down to infamy ; but a more 
powerful motive than personal tenderness — the good of society— may 
draw us into an attempt to check the inroads which a set of dissolute 
meu arc making on the reputation of our green-rooms. 



THEATRICAL OBSERVER* 



Last night we had in The Rivals, several novelties. — Mis3 Kelly 
appeared as *Lydia Languish, and Mrs. W. West, as Julia, which 
were extremely well acted by them. Then there were two debuts:-—' 
a Mr. .Raymond, from Birmingham, represented Faulkland, and a 
Mr. Duff, from Edinburgh, filled the character of Da&id. Of Mr. 
Raymond we will remark, that he was barely respectable ; he shewed 
no genius whatever for the stage in this character. We cannot, how- 
ever, take upon us to say that he would not appear to more advan- 
tage in some other line of character. Of Mr. Duff, we are happy 
to observe, that he acted the short ;part ©f David extremely well; 
and we have little doubt but that he will become very useful to a Lon- 
don Theatre, and very agreeable to a London audience. Mr. Dowton, 
m Sir Anthony Absolute, and Mr. Vixino, as Jack Absolute, acted 
very pleasantly. Mrs. Windsor, in Mrs. Malaprop, also, gav« much 
satisfaction. Mr. Liston's Acres created much amusement : — he 
was in an excellent acting humor. — The house was crowded. 

Accident at the Adelphi Theatre. — Thursday night last at the 
Aclelphi Theatre, an accident which was likely to have proved serious 
in its consequences, happened to Mr. Payne, the principal vocalist of 
the above establishment. Mr. Payne, it appears was in his dressing- 
room, adjusting himself preparatory to the performance of a grand 
chorus, in Valmondi, in wnich he sustains a singing character, when 
it was announced that the period had nearly arrived for his entrance. 
Mr. P. with considerable haste quitted the room, and was proceeding 
down stairs, and not being perfectly acquainted with the structure of 
the place, in making a sudden turn he was precipitated headforemost 
over the bannisters to the stage, a considerable height, and inflicted 
a severe cut on his nose, from which the blood flowed profusely, and 
we regret to say, that he was otherwise considerable bruised by the 
fall. The performances, however, could not be delayed, and the 
gentleman was obliged, in his " bleeding state," to enter the stage 
with a handkerchief before his face to wipe away the blood, which 
was perceptible to the audience, who were somewhat concerned, con- 
ceiving that something more serious had happened to him : but not- 
withstanding the unpleasant dilema in which he was involved, he sang 
with his usual ability, until he retired from the stage, when he was 
evidently much affected by the accident, loss of blood, &c. Every 
assistance was afforded him, and the audience appeared impatient to 
ascertain the state of the gentleman, when it was announced that the 
nature of the accident was not so serious as to interfere with his pro- 
fessional engagements, but had left a severe incision of his nose, and 
a few bruises. The cause of accident is attributed to the over 
anxiety of Mr. P. not to keep the ^tage waiting.

J)er Frcischutz is a standing dish here ; and it appears we are to 
have another course of the same ingredients at Drury. Well ; if it 
shall be found to answer the purposes of the Proprietors, we cannot 
object, any further than that we think we ought to have, by and bye, 
something of sterling home-made quality, to vary the performances, 
and do credit to the Managers as the supporters of a genuine British 
Stage. It appears extraordinary that no man of superior talent has 
of late years ventured into the dramatic field. Many are inclined to 
attribute this to a perverted taste in the public, and a necessity which 
the Managers feel to administer to any depraved appetite for melo- 
dramas, &c which might exist. But, in our. opinion, nothing of the 
kind, has produced the indifference of men of genius towards dramatic 
writing. The fact is, there has taken place a great revolution in so- 
ciety since the days of Con'gk.eve, Steele, Farquiiar, Dryde.v, &c. 
when the pit was thronged with men of taste and learning, and the 
boxes glittered with persons of the first fashion, in our times, al- 
though the pit is occupied by a rational class, yet there are i'aw cri- 
tics there ; and the dress-boxes, although filled by persons in genteel 
and fashionable life, rarely contain any who deem it decorous to entat 
with any enthusiastic feeling into theatrical matters. Thus, the high 
incentive to stage-writing — the favorable opinion of the leading wits, 
and persons of taste, of the day — is gone by, and nothing but the 
common premium for labour — money — is held forth to induce a man 
of genius to devote his time and attention to dramatic writing. Hfenco 
the art has fallen into the baud? of persons whose necessities make 
them study safe writing ; which always abounds least with flights of 
genius ; and the result is a scries of common-plac€S in dialogue, that 
rather degrades than raises the character of our drama.

The performance of The Merry J Fives of Windsor last night,- at- 
tracted a very considerable audience. Mr. Dowton's Falslaf we 
have frequently remarked upon as a very successful piece of acting. — 
He keeps close to the genuine humor of the character, and rj&akes 
many palpable hits ; particularly where he narrates to Master Ford 
the disasters he had encountered in pursuing his intrigue with the 
Merry Wives* Ford was very judiciously played by Mr. Pope. Sir

lover — the character in his hands is perfectly Shakspearian. Jlfrs. 
Ford was sustained by Miss Kklly, for the first time. She both acted 
and sang with very excellent effect, and was ably seconded by Mrs, 
Garrick, as *Mrs. Page. Miss Povey makes a nice little Ann Page, 
and gave her songs with her usual ability. Mr. Melrose, in Fenton 
sang with much taste and general good effect. The whole Comedy 
may be said to have been performed in a very successful manner, as 
the audience appeared highly pleased. 

The Farce of " Fish out of Water," followed, and Mr. Liston 
kept the house in great good humor by his comic representation of 
JSam Savoury. 

Surrey. — This Theatre was numerously and fashionably attended 
last night, to witness the popular pieces of The Cook, with The 
Kceuba ; or. Indian Pirate's Vessel, and Der Freischutz. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Mr. Editor, 

Being an honest man, and a sincere lover of justice, I 
think myself called upon, through the medium of your very useful 
and widely circulated Publication, to expose a scene of the most fla- 
grant injustice I ever witnessed towards an unoffending individual. 

Paving a desire to visit Sadler'9 Wells on Monday evening, and 
arriving there rather loo early for the performance, in the interim, I 
went into the Hugh Myddleton Tavern to procure some refreshment. 
Three respectable looking individuals were in the same apartment, and 
I was gradually drawn to listen to their conversation ; the subject of 
which was the evening's entertainments — the middle piece I understood 
was a parody, and that without even knowing the subject, ("except 
that it was greatly extoled by the performers) these gentlemen, thro' 
some secret motive against the author, were going for the express 
purpose of damning it. Their watch-word was to call for a song on- 
titled " Adam and Eve," never announced in any bill of the perform- 
ance. The gallery was to be the rendezvous, and they had no doubt 
but the gods would join them in creating a row, in order to procure a 
favorite song. Disgusted with such duplicity, I entered the Theatre ; 
the performances went oil* smoothly till the second piece — " Adam fy 
Eve," was called for, hissing and dissatisfaction were the consequence, 
and one of the best burlesques I ever witnessed,was received with mur- 
murs, through the artifices of envious and designing villainy. But I 
have no doubt the piece will have a fair trial ; and trusting you will 
excuse this intrusion, I sign myself,

THEATRICAL OBSERVER* 



SDmrp Ham €l)eatre, 

T*o-morrow night this Theatre opens for the season with the Opera 
of The Marriage of Figaro, a new Divertisement, in which Mons 
Hullin's Pupils are to appear, and the Farce of Frightened to Death. 
The Manager has announced for Monday next, a new Drama of En- 
chantment, under the title of " The Enchanted Courser** in which 
that wonderful Equestrian, Ducrow, is to perform some extraordinary 
feats. The Management have published a List of the Performers en- 
gaged here, which we shall give to-mowow. 

A new Comedy has been read in the Green Room of Covent Garden 
Theatre. It is entituled " The fFidowofCornhill," and Mr. Charles 
Kemble, Mr. Young, and Miss Chester, have characters in it. 

To the Editor of The Theatrical Observer. 

Sir — I read your Covent Garden article of last Wednesday, with 
very approving sentiments at the indignant language you used in re- 
spect of the loose characters in the green-rooms, and which I Rin- 
cerely trust will arouse such attention to certain persons of this de- 
scription as may tend to make them, at least, conceal their amours 
for the future from the public, Who cannot but despise them, although 
they may be entertained by their acting on the stage. But, Sir, there 
is another degradation attends our Theatres: namely, the facilities 
given to shoals of abandoned women to enter the boxes. True, they 
are excluded from the dress-circle, but the circle above, to which 
many respectable families go when they pay an informal visit to the 
Theatres, is intruded on by these disgusting creatures, whose language 
and manners are totally unfit to be heard or witnessed, particularly 
by the younger members of our families. It is a national disgrace 
that this evil is permitted to the length it exists ; and through the 
medium of your little, useful, and well principled publication, I ad- 
dress the Managers, by entreating them for the sake of their own 
and their country's reputation, to banish such indecency from the 
half-dress cirele, as it may be termed ; and thus ensure the genteel 
and correct members of society, who love a good Play, an opportunity 
of indulging a sudden desire of seeing it, by going in walking dress, 
to a part of the boxes where they will not be molested by half-drunkeri 
women, and their shameless followers. 

I am, your's.

Thbre was a crowded and genteel audience here, last night, to see 
Der Freisehutz, and Clari. Miss Paton in the former, and Miss 
M. Tube in the latter, sang beautifully. 



J^ap^matftct €l)eatre* 

The Heir at Law was acted last night. Mr. Liston, who played 
Lord Duherly, unfortunately had a severe cold; which made him so 
hoarse that it was evidently a painful exertion for him to speak ; this 
of course diminished the effect of his acting, but he still contrived to 
make the audience laugh heartily ; in which he was most pleasantly 
assisted by Mr. Harley, in Doctor Pangloss. The other characters 
were well sustained. After the Comedy, a new Farce, with music, 
was produced, under the title of Hide and Seek. This is a vevy poo* 
affair ; and, notwithstanding, was most patiently heard out by the 
audience. The Plot is very trilling : — A young Page (Mrs. Hill) has 
offended his master the Count, (Mr. Melrose) and takes refuge in the 
gardens of an old nursery-man, (Mr. Williams) whose daughter, 
(Miss Kelly) he is in love with. The Nursery-man's nephew, (Mr. 
Liston) remarking the treading down of the shrubs, and having seen 
the Page in the gardens at night,imagines they are haunted by a ghost, 
but the old nurseryman conceives his flower beds have been invaded 
by a fox. The Count comes 'to assist in unkennelling Reynard, but 
only sups, sleeps, falls in love with the daughter, and at length par- 
dons the Page, and gives him the hand of the girl. There was 
some opposition at the end Mr. Liston apologised for his cold, and 
hoped on Monday to " do justice" to the piece. Were the Manager 
to hide it in his lumber-closet, he may rely on it the public would never 
seek after it.

This noble Theatre was opened to the public on Saturday night, fov 
the season. It retains, without any further embellishment, all its 
former elegance and splendour. The Opera of The Jilarriage of 
Figaro, a new Divcrtisemcnt, and the Farce of Frighten* d to Death. 
In the Opera, a Miss Graodox, from the Dublin Theatre, made her 
first appearance before a London audience, is the character of Su- 
sanna. She is a petite but pleasing figure, a sweet and accomplished 
singer, and will probably become a very good actress. She was en- 
cored in almost all her songs: and we are decidedly of opinion that 
she will prove a great acquisition to the vocal corps of this theatre. 
Her reception altogether was highly flattering. The new Divcrtise- 
ment by Mons. Hulun's Pupils, exhibited some pretty dancing by 
children. Mr. IIarley and i^Ir. Knight in the Farce, created much 
laughter. 

Mr. Hamblin, from the Dublin Theatre, made his appearance 
before a London audience, at this house on Saturday evening. Ths 
character selected by him was that of Hamlet : one which calls forth 
every resource of tragic talent. Mr. Hamblin, we are happy to state, 
succeeded in an eminent degree — indeed, he may be classed near our 
Young, our Kemble, and our Macreaby. He possesses a tall and 
graceful figure — his features are strongly marked — his voice is rather 
defective in clearness of tone in some parts, but it is powerful and 
manly ; and his enunciation is perfect and impressive. His judgment 
is rarely wrong in the reading of his author ; and his action always 
just, and generally highly effective. He sometimes rose to a pitch of 
animated feeling, particularly in the scene with Ophelia, that of the 
Play, the scene with Gertrtide, and the rencontre with Laertes at the 
funeral. The applause he received throughout, was crowned by the 
most enthusiastic cheers at the conclusion, and he was called forth, 
and at length appeared, to announce the repetition of the same tra- 
gedy for to-morrow night. Ophelia was admirably acted by Miss 
Kelly — she moved many even to tears. Mr. Williams was a very 
good Polonius : and Mrs. Glover represented the Queen extremely 
well. 

tfoDent <£atfce n €f)catrc* 

Uer Freischulz, and Charles the Second, drew a numerous audience 
here on Saturday night.— The music was delightfully executed by Miss 
Pai'on and Miss Love.

SDrurp 2 am Cljcatrc* 

The Tragic Play of Pizarro was acted here last night. Rolla, by 
Mr. Wallacic. This gentleman always acts with considerable force 
and effect, and he obtained much applause in some parts, which he 
gave with effective energy. Mrs. W. West was the Cora, and a very 
interesting one she makes. A gentleman of the name of Armstrong, 
from the Dublin Theatre, made his first appearance as Alonzo. Mr. 
Armstrong has a good figure ; his features not very flexible; his voice 
rather defective ; so much so, that what he was uttering was fre- 
quently inaudible in most parts of the house. He acted with pro- 
priety iu some instances, but in others with rather too little self-pos- 
session. In the combat with Pizarro he fought in a flurry, and we 
fully expected his opponeut, Mr. Voungr, would have had received 
a bona tide cut and thrust. After the Tragedy, Mons. Hullin's Pu- 
pils dauecd prettily. One little old woman of four years old, created 
shouts of laughter at her amusing and clever style of dancing. A 
Mrs. Weston made her debut in the Farce of Moyiticur Tojison, as 
Madame Bcllegardc, and was favorably received. — The house became 
full in the course of the evening. 

<ffobent <£atticn €ljcatre* 

Der Preischutz, and the Pantomime, were represented last night 
to a numerous audience. The music of the former is the ruling at-* 
traction — it is certainly very fine : no one should omit to be in time 
to hear the Overture. Miss M. Tree appears to-night as Clari. 

l)ap marftrt ^cattc* 

Mr. Dowton played Doctor Cantwcll last night, with his usual ad- 
mirable effect. This gentleman has extended his engagement here. — 
Hide and Seek, on its second performance, was much opposed; 

Mr. IIamrlix, who acted Hamlet with such distinguished suceess 
on Saturday night, repeats that character to-night. 

Suruey — This Theatre was numerously and fashionably attended last night, 
to see the fust performance of anew niclo-drama, entitled Wardock Kennilson 
or, the Outcast and her Son, and the favorite drama of The Kocuba ; or, the 
Indian Pirate's Vessel. 

Adelpiii. — There was another crow led audience assembled here to see the 
popular piece of Valmondi, and the' burlesque of Quadrupeds! In the latter 
pi«ce, Mr. J. Reeve performed with considerable humor. 

Olymfic— The pieces performed here last night, were the ballet of Leg 
Rendezvous Nocturnal, with the burletta of A Deed without 'a Name, and t,h« 
burletta of Rochester. — Master Frampton was encored in a comic dance.

Cotott <£arfern Zfymtzc. 

It is no easy matter to say any thing' new under the head of this 
Theatre, so long as it has the Black Huntsman staring us in the face. 
It is an odd thing that by frightening all the women-and children who 
go aud sec this piece, its fame is greatly encreased, and proves old 
Nick to be quite in fashion. Miss Paton sung magnificently : and in 
the following piece of Ctari, Miss M. Tree gave * Home, sweet home' 
divinely. Mr. Fawcett's Rolamo is as fine a piece of pathetic acting 
as we ever saw in this line of character. 

SDrttri; lane Ctpatrr* 

Miss (Jkaddon appeared for the second time as Susanna, in The 
^Marriage of Figaro, last night, and met equal favor from the au- 
dience. In The Sleeping Draught, Mr. Harlky was highly amusing 
as Popolino. 

In consequence of the extensive preparations making for the new 
Tale of Enchantment, this Theatre will not be opened this evening. 
The piece will not be produced until to-morrow. 



I!?ap marftct €ljratre- 

Mr. Hamblin appeared for the second time as Hamlet, and obtained 
equal applause to that which attended his successful efforts on the 
former evening. A Mr. Pritchard, from the Edinburgh Theatre, 
made bis debut in the character of Laertes, and was favorably re- 
ceived. The following is a copy of a bill posted round the doors, 
yesterday afternoon : — " The Public are most respectfully informed, 
that in consequence of the sudden indisposition of Mr. Liston, the 
new Farce of Hide and Seek, cannot be acted this Evening, and that 
The Devil to Pay will be substituted— Jobson, Mr. Dowtox, Nell, 
Miss Kelly."- —and, consequently, that piece was performed with 
much humor. The Mayor of Garratt followed this piece, in which 
Mr. Dowton and Mr. West acted very laughably. Mr. Ebsworth's 
Crispin Heeltap was excellent. 

Yesterday the action brought by Mr. \V. H. Williams, of Drury 
Lane Theatre, against Mr. Elllston for an assault, was amicably 
settled in Court by the Counsel for the latter, expressing Mr. Ellis- 
ton's regret, that any difference should have existed between him 



THE THEATRICAL OBSERVER. 



aud a respectable member of his company ; and adding, that it was 
his sincere desire to live on friendly terms with the plaintiff. This 
manly and handsome conduct on Mr. Elliston's part, was met by 
Mr. Williams; through his Counsel, with corresponding readiness to 
put an end to all dispute. A great number of members of the theat- 
rical profession were present. 

The man who threw a bottle from the gallery into the pit of the 
Cobeurg Theatre, some weeks ago, and has beea in prison ever since, 
is to be indicted for the misdemeanor before the Grand Jury for the 
County of Surrey, next term. It was a brutal action, as it might 
have produced the death of some one. 

Mr. Kean has been playing at Liverpool — He is said to be retained 
by Mr. Elliston to perform twenty nights, prior to his departure for 
America, at the rate of £50. per night. 

Theatrical Jockeying — An extraordinary story has been for some 
days in circulation respecting the employment of Mr. D's troop by 
Mr. E. which if true, fully mantains the proverbial necessity for attend- 
ing strictly to the wording of a " horse engagement." On dit that 
Mr. E. wishing to secure for his theatre the celebrated equestrian 
troop of Mr. D. offerd that person certain terms, which were accepted 
and an article was immediately executed by the parties. Mr. E. left 
town immediately after. On dit that on his way home Mr. D. shewed 
the aiticle to a legal friend, who said it was all right ; " for," added, 
Capias " there is not a single word in it respecting your own perform- 
ance." " Nor is there/' said the equestrian, taking the hint. Mr. E. 
it is added, on his return to town a few days ago, found the piece in 
preparation in which the horses were to appear, and on his enquiring 
for Mr. D., he was given to understand that he had not been seen at 
the Theatre, but that the horses were there, under the care of Mr. 
D.'s people, one of whom was immediately summoned before Mr. E., 
who asked him, " Where is jour master?" " I think he is gone to 
call upon Mr. F., Sir." " Mr. F. — Tell him to come to me imme- 
diately." Mr. D. appeared. " How comes it, Mr. D., that you have 
not attended the Rehearsals V — " Because I have nothing to do with 
the performance." " Nothing to do ! Have I not engaged you and 
your troop." " My troop you have engaged and the horses are now 
here ; you shall have more if necessary ; but my own performance 
you have not engaged ; I am thinking of going to the Garden, and 
am looking out for horses for them." Mr. E. was astonished ; re- 
ferred to the article, and found that although he contemplated the 
services of Mr. D. with his troop, he had neglected to stipulate for 
them. He was in consequence obliged to enter into a new arrange- 
ment with the Equestrian, by which he bound himself to pay that ca- 
pital performer fifteen pounds a week in addition to the sum specified 
In the original article. We give the above ss we have heard it, with- 
out vouching for its accuracy ; and shall willingly insert a contra* 
diction should it be unfounded. — Morning Paper.

Cobcnt €arfccn Glfytattc. 

The repeated performances of Der Freischutz have not yet sa- 
tiated public curiosity, for last night there was a very crowded house 
in most parts. The management have not remained satisfied with 
the original terrors of the Incantation-scene, but have added much to 
increase the effect, which is now truly diabolical and overwhelming. 
A ring of fire bursts forth round the magic circle, new monsters ap- 
pear in the air vomiting flame, and the noises and howlings have in- 
creased in violence and terrific effect. — The audience appeared on the 
renewal of the lights, almost in fits. The music continues as great 
an attraction as ever. Mr. Pearman displays his taste to advan- 
tage ; and the amiable and highly gifted Miss Paton, executed her 
songs with all the brilliancy and charming tone for which she is so 
distinguished. This young lady stands amongst the first ornaments 
of her profession ; equally gracing the public and the private circle. 

The comic piece of Charles the Second followed : and Mr. C. Kem- 
ble represented the Merry Monarch in the happiest style, taking him 
either in his royal attire, or as the jolly jacky-tar. Miss M. Tree, 
as Mary, sweetly acted and sang. Mr. Fawcett's old Sea Captain 
is another of his excellent performances ; and every one cannot but 
smile with Mr. Jones in his performance of Rochester. 



SDmrp Hane €tjcatrc. 

This Theatre was devoted last night to a private rehearsal of the 
" Talc of Enchantment/' to be produced this evening. It is said to 
be got up with much brilliancy. 

^ap^natfect €!jeati:c* 

Mr. Hamblin acted Rob Roy yesterday evening here. He is a per- 
former of great energy of mind ; and his representation of the High- 
land Free-booter was distinguished for a just conception of the cha- 
racter, and a very powerful execution, which was acknowledged by 
the audience with frequent applauses. Mr. Williams supported the 
part of the Baillie, in consequence of Mr. Liston being indisposed 
with a severe cold. He did it very judiciously. Mr. Duff performed 
Dougal extremely well. A Mr. Pritchard made a debut here the 
other evening : and last night acted Raahleigh Oshaldision. — He will 
prove a useful member of the company wc dare say.

There was another crowded and elegant audience here last night 
to see Der Freischutz and Clari. 

i^ap^nfarfeer€l)catire* 

Mr. Dowton appeared as Doctor Cantwelll&st night, with his usual 
striking effect : and afterwards acted Mr. Simpson in a very comic 
manner. — The house was well attended. 



SDrutp Sane €f)catre* 

Simpson and Co. commenced the business of last night. The head 
of the firm, the worthy Peter Simpson, was represented by Mr. 
Terry as excellently as ever. Mrs. Bunn is rather of too command- 
ing a figure for such a little character as that of his spouse Mr. 
and Mrs. Bromleg were very pleasantly performed by Mr. Browke 
and Mrs. W. West. Afterwards Mons. Hullin's Pupils danced ; 
and the little old woman was again encored in her jig. The audience, 
which was a very crowded one, became impatient for the announced 
grand magic tale, entitled " The Enchanted Courser ; or, the Sultan 
of Curdistan," At length it commenced with a magnificent scene of 
the Court of Ispahan. The story of this piece of " Enchantment," 
is simply this : — The Sultan of Curdistan, (Mr. Wallack) being en- 
chanted by the lovely eyes of the Princess of Cachemire, (Mrs. W. 
West) seeks the aid of supernatural powers to enable him to carry 
her off from her betrothed lover, the Prince of Persia, ("Mr. Penley.) 
He, therefore, comes to the Court of Ispahan, disguised as a Wild 
Indian, attended by his slave Babouc, (Mr. Harley) and causes the 
suspension of the nuptials by the Enchanted Courser, which he brings 
with him, bearing off the Prince of Persia. The Indian is seized by 
orders of the Sophi, but at the moment when his head is about to be 
cut off, the Prince returns safe, and the Indian is set at liberty. The 
nuptials are again in preparation, when the disguised Sultan carries 
off on his Enchanted Horse, the fair Princess, whom he bears to his 
Palace of Curdistan. Here he is pursued by the Persians, and after 
a hair-breath escape of the Prince by the assistance of Babouc, and 
a tremendous battle, the Sultan is slain, and his Palace blown up, 
and the Prince of Persia and the Princess of Cachcmirs are united. 

We cannot say that as a drama this Tale of Enchantment is likely to pro«? 
duce a magic effect ; but as far as regards the display of scenery, dresses, and 
decorations ; and of horse-capering and trumpet-blowing, it is one of the most 
beautiful, splendid, well-going, and noisy pieces, that ever was seen on the 
stage. It met a little opposition ; but the majority received it as a great scenie 
effort.

Ao. 911 Saturday, Oct. 30, 1824. Price Id, 

Cobcnt <£arbm €ljcatre» 

A numerous and fashionable audience witnessed the 14th peiform- 
ance of Der Frcisckut.-, here, last night ; and the music and Incan- 
tatiori-scenc were immensely applauded. The latter is now represent- 
ed in a st)le surpassing description. The Farce of Too Late for 
Dinner was acted very humorously. 

SDrurp Sane €i)catre. 

Every one who knows any thing of the stage, has heard of the ta- 
lented Miss Brunton, who from various causes has not appeared on 
the boards of either of our National Theatres for some years. The 
readers of this Paper will, however, recollect that- her name was often 
referred to as acting at her father's then theatre, in Tottenham 
Street, and always with the high commendation which even in that 
confined sphere she ever amply merited. This young lady has sinee 
married Mr. Yates, of Covent Garden Theatre, and haviug been en- 
gaged by Mr. Elliston, she appeared last night, for the first time. 
K%Violante, in the Comedy of The Wonder. We were sorry to find 
her still rather delicate looking after her recent indisposition; but 
her spirit was as vigorous as ever, and she acted the character 
throughout in the happiest style ; giving in the scene between her and 
Von Felix, where Colonel Britton is supposed to be in the bed charrw 
ber, proofs of the highest comic talent. Mrs. Yaces is always full 
of her character, and with an excellent understanding of it, and a 
power of spirited execution, she never fails to give a true and effect- 
ive portraiture of what she represents. She was welpomed, and ap- 
plauded throughont in the warmest manner. Mr. Eluston played 
Don Felix with his usual energy and effect. Lmardo was represented 
by Mr. Harley with all his wonted humor. A Miss Nicol, from 
Edinburgh, made her debut as Flora, and was favorably received- 
she understands the business of the stage thoroughly. Miss Smith- 
son, as Isabella, and Mrs Orger, as Inis, acted very agreeably. — 
The splendid Tale of Enchantment followed, and went off more 
smoothly than on the first night. — The house filled at half-price.— 
Miss Chester was in a private box. 

5)ap^marftet €f)eatte* 

The performances here are carried on with much spirit. But the 
" Little Theatre" must no longer be called a " Summer Theatre/' — 
There are more debuts in petto. A Miss George, from Bath, is to 
appear on Monday next, as Susanna, m The Marriage of Figaro,

Der Freischutz, and A Tale of Mystery, were performed on Sa- 
turday night to a very good house. — There were several encores. 



I^ap^marfeet €f)eatrc. 

The School for Scandal was represented at this theatre on Satur- 
day night. Mr. Dowton was the Sir p et*>r Teazle, and acted it with 
very considerable effect ; but he does not come up to Mr. Munden or 
Mr. YV. Farren in the character. He looks more like an old yeoman 
than a man of some breeding and fashion. He is much better cal- 
culated for Sir Oliver. Mrs. Hamblix, the wife of the gentleman 
who recently appeared here as Hamlet, &c. and a daughter of that 
public favorite, Mr. Blaxchard, of Covent-garden theatre, made 
her first appearance for a long period, in the character of Lady 
Teazle. She performed it with a considerable share of talent and 
knowledge of the stage, and was very favorably received. Mr. Uamb- 
lin played Joseph in a very appropriate manner ; and Charles was 
pleasantly sustained by Mr. Vixixg. J\Iosex, by Mr. Wilkinson, was 
not badly done. The entertainments concluded with 'Twould Puzzle 
a Cvnjuror, and The Prize. 

SDrutp Sane CEpatrc* 

The Dramatist was acted here on Saturday night. Mr. Ellis- 
ton supported the character of Vapid in a very spirited manner;— 
Mr. Terry, and Mr. Harley, as Lord Scratch, and Ennui, were 
very favorably rceeived. The Enchanted Courser followed. — The 
scenery was not well managed, and met with some disapprobation ; in 
the last act part of a scene fell en the stage, to the manifest incon- 
venience of the warriors, horse and foot, who figured at the storming 
of the fortress of Curdistan.

CoScnt^Earben -3$eatte. 

Mr. Young acted Macbeth last night. — He represents this arduous 
character with great effect ; and particularly in the scene which pre- 
cedes and follows the murder, he gave an appalling picture of a man 
worked up by ambition to commit so foul a deed, and pf the alarms 
of conscience that succeed its commission. In the banquet-scene 
the latter sensations were most powerfully delineated, and commu- 
nicated a corresponding emotion in the audience. The applause he 
received was frequent aud warm. Mrs. Hartley was the Lady Mac- 
beth : she displays much talent and knowledge of the character, but 
there are physical causes for her not succeeding in giving the highest 
effect to this terrible woman. A more commanding figure is absolutely 
necessary to give a perfect idea of the character : having seen Mrs. 
Siddons so often in it, has, we fear, prevented our liking the perform- 
ance of any other lady in the part. Mr. C. Kemble played Macduff; 
and in the scene where the destruction of his wife and all his little 
ones by the fell tyrant, is communicated to him, no acting could sur- 
pass the effect he produce d. — There was a very good house. 

Ipapmiatftet ®fjeatte* 

After the Comedy of The Hypocrite, the Opera of The Marriage 
of Figaro was represented, for the purpose of introducing a Miss 
George, from the Bath Theatre, in the part of Susunna. This 
young lady appears under twenty, and has a pleasing person, and she 
acted the character very well, and her singing was admired; but there 
was nothing in her voice to warrant the idea of her taking a leading 
station on the London boards. — She plays Polly to-night. — This 
Theatre closes on the loth instant.

Pizarro, and The Enchanted Courser, were acted hist night, and 
the latter was relished by the lovers of fine scenery and ambling nags.

brated " Trip to America," to-night.

palates, have introduced half-price here, and from the fullness of the 
house, last night, we should imagine that the event proved as pro- 
fitable as they could wish.

produced, entitled The Young Widow, which was very well received.

Cokent €arfcen Ctjeattc, 

There was a very numerous and elegant audience here last night, 
to see Der Freischutz and Charles the Second. In the former we re- 
marked that Miss Paton was in peculiarly fine voice, and she was 
listened to with the most silent attention during the execution of some 
of the most delicate and beautiful passages, and her whole efforts 
were further recognised by loud applauses. Mr. PEARMAN'sang with 
his usual taste ; and Miss Love gave the songs allotted to her very 
well. The Overture and hunting-chorus were both encored. 

SDrurp lane €ljcatrc* 

The pleasant Opera of Love in a Village was performed here last 
night to a moderate house. The chief novelty was the debut of Mr and 
Mrs. Bedford, as Hawthorn and Rosetta. Mrs. Bedford, though 
not tall, is not ungraceful in her person ; her features, without being 
regular, are pleasing and intelligent, and as a singer she possesses a 
voice of extensive volume. Mr. Bedford is a performer of a very 
personable appearance. In the introduced festive song, " Who deep- 
ly drinks of wine," which was encored, he displayed a lightsomeness 
of taste and humor, which is admirably suited to that social and po- 
pular style of singing to which the song belongs. The reception of 
liim and Mrs. Bedford was most favorable. Mr. Knight's Hodge 
is a masterpiece of rustic drollery. 

ipap^tiarfet €l)catre* 

The Comedy of The Rivals, and The Beggar's Opera, were the 
performances here last night. The novelties in the Comedy were 
Mrs. and Mrs. Hamdlin's Faulkland and Julia. — They both acquitted 
themselves well. In the Opera, Miss George appeared as Polly, and 
gave the exquisite airs allotted to her in very good style. Her voice 
is peculiarly sweet, and her execution of " Cea6e your funning," was 
admirable. 

English Opera.- —Mr. Mathews renewed his comic " Trip" last 
night. — There was an excellent house. 

Miss Foote. — It has been rumoured for the last {ew days, that the 
world would be defrauded of the interesting piece of scandal which is 
expected to be developed at the approaching action for " breach of 
promise, " brought by, Miss Foote against Mr. Haync. It is said that 
a douceur of five hundred pounds, or thereabouts, has been offered 
io and refused by the injured party, and active preparations a«e 
making for the dav of trial.

The deep Tragedy of Venice Preserved was acted last night ; — 
Jajier. by Mr. 0. Kemble, Pierre, by Mr. Young, and Belmdera, by 
** A Lady," her first appearance on this stage. With the fine per- 
formance of Mr. Young and Mr. C. Kemble in the present characters, 
the town is well acquainted : but we may state, that they both ex- 
erted themselves greatly on this occasion, and were eminently success- 
ful in their efforts to give the most striking effects to their several 
parts, Mr. Kemble in some instances rose greatly superior to any of 
his former representations of Jaffier that we have seen, and made a 
corresponding powerful impression on the audience. The " Lady," 
who, we understand, is a Mm.Sloman, and sister-in-law to MlSloman, 
of the English Opcra-House, enacted the mournful Belvidera with 
considerable success. Her figure is good, and above the middle sta- 
ture. Her countenance is fair ; but her features do not possess much 
flexibility : her voice is powerful and pleasing ; and she has a very 
distinct enunciation. In point of judgment, and knowledge of the 
stage, there appears no defect : and her action is always appropriate. 
Yet, With all these requisites for the stage, her performance was not 
of the brilliant order. There is much merit to be ascribed to her ; 
but whilst we felt this, we could not, except in the concluding scene, 
say that our feelings were carried away by her acting. In that scene, 
she undoubtedly shewed an absorption in her character, that could 
not fail to produce an emotion. The crowded audience was bountiful 
of applauses ; and the Tragedy was announced for repetition on Sa- 
turday next, with marks of much approbation. The Opera of The 
Barber of Seville followed, in which Miss M. Tree sweetly sustained 
the character and songs of Roshia, 

SDrutp Hane €ljcatrc. 

The Comedy of The fVonder was repeated last night, in conse- 
quence of the success of its former performance. Miss Bruntov, we 
beg pardon, Mrs. Yates, on her second appearance as Viohmte, ob- 
tained equal approbation to her previous representation of the cha- 
racter. The Enchanted Courser drew a good half-price audience. 

J^ap^marftct €ljeatte. 

The performances here drew a good house. Miss George, as 
Polly, in The Beggar's Opera, sang very delightfully, and is likely 
to be a favorite in a Theatre of this size. She was encored in '• Cease 
vour funnin^." Mr. Melrose is a passable JYIacheath. The horn- 
pipe by Mr. Bemetzrieder, was encored. Sweethearts and Wives, 
and Simpson and Co. followed. In the latter, Mr. Dowton played 
honest Mr. Simpson, hut it is not in his proper line of acting.

The Opera of Love in a Village was repeated here last night, when 
Mr. and Mrs. Bedford, on their second appearance as Hawthorn and 
Rosctta. obtained much applause. Mr. Bedford has a pleasant man- 
ly figure and countenance, and sang with great good humor. Ho is 
calculated to become a very popular performer with the Londoners. — 
His lady, who is likely to be a very useful addition to the establish- 
ment of this theatre, is, however, not adapted to do great things in 
leading vocal characters. On this occasion, Mrs. Waylett, who 
was so long the heroine of Tom and Jerry at the Adelphi Theatre, 
and has also been attached to the Birmingham company, made her 
first appearance here as Madge. It hardiy requires particular men- 
tion to a Lordon public, that this lady is a most pleasing and clever 
actress, and that she sings very sweetly. As Madge she was re- 
ceived with unbounded applause, and was encored in her songs. She 
ic a considerate acquisition to this theatre. Mrs. IIarlowe's De- 
borah Woodcock is good ; and Mr. Terry's Justice Woodcock is a 
humorous performance — be is always in earnest in his endeavour to 
please, and it would therefore be as difficult for him to fail entirely, 
as it would be unjust towards him to withhold the praise he merits. — 
Mr. Horn sang with taste, and acted with appropriate spirit, in the 
character of Young Meadows. Miss Povey executed the airs of Lu- 
cinda with her usual precision and ability. Of Mr. Knight's Hodge 
too much nraise cannot be said in its commendation — it is a natural 
and verv humorous performance. The Enchanted Courser followed. 

Ijjap^matfect &§mttz. 

After The Hypocrite, The Marriage of Figaro was repeated, 
with Miss George as Susanna ; in which character she gave much 
pleasure by the superior manner in which she executed the songs — She 
was encored in the introduced song of " Bid me discourse." 

English Opera.- —Mr. Mathews had to boast of an illustrious vi- 
sitor to his " At Hc?ne." last night. Her Royal Highness the Duch- 
ess of Kent, the Marquis of Hertford, the Marquis of Tichfield, 
Lord Cathcast, the Hon. Mr. Douglas, Hon. Frederick Byng, Mr.

In Der Freischutz last night, there was the same delightful exe- 
cution of the music, and the same wonderments in the Incantation- 
scene, which is managed with superior effect to any scenic exhibition 
perhaps ever seen on the stage. We presume Mr. Farley arranged 
this extraordinary scene, and, if so, it reflects great credit on his 
assiduous attention, as well as on the artists engaged upon it; Miss 
Paton sang admirably, and received great applause. Mr. Pearman, 
Mr. J. Isaacs, Miss Love, and the chorus-singers merit much praise 
for their share in the performance, which went off with its usual eclat. 

In the Interlude of Cozening, Mr. 'Fates was very amusing, and 
gave his imitations of various celebrated performers with surprising 
correctness of resemblance. The Farce of Cent, per Cent, concluded 
the entertainments ; and gave great delight by the excellent acting of 
Messrs. W. Farren, Jones, and Connor. 

SDrurp flant €fjcatre* 

The amusing Comedy of JVild Oats was performed last nigut, for 
the first time this season. Mr. Lllliston's Mover was the chief at- 
traction of the piece ; in this character he always appears quite at 
home, giving to it a great share of vivacity and humor. Rover is 
followed through the various scenes by the audience with pleasure. be« 
cause he never appears but to cause them entertainment. He is a 
gay, good-natured, rattle-headed rogue ; and the author has kept 
up the reputation of the wandering gentleman for folly and pleasa; try 
extremely well. Mr. Elliston received much ap'plause : a d 
other characters were well sustained. 

Last night Mr. Dowton took his Kenenl at this * 

very numerous audience, who were highly er^ertai 
in The Merry fVives of Windsor. \Yo are sorry to s;i 
West, who had acted Dr. Cains, under severe iiidis osition, was 
compelled to relinquish his other characters tor the evening. Miss 
Kelly, Miss George, and Mrs. Garrick, sang and acted as the 
Merry Wives and Anne Page, very delightfully. Miss George was 
encored in " Lo, here the gentle Lark." In the Farce of Family 
Jars, Mrs. C. Jones was most cordially encored in " The Boys of 
Kilkenny." Mr. Duff played Diggory Delph for Mr. West. 

Two persons called at our office and informed us that there Avas a rebellion of 
Scene-shifters at Covent Garden Theatre last night, in consequence of an at-

Coiicnt €arDcn Ctjcatre. 

Venice Preserved was performed for the second time this season, 
on Saturday night, ivhen Mrs. Sloman again appeared as Belvidera. 
Her acting oh this occasion confirmed our former opinion of her ta- 
lents for the stage, as for as an appearance in a single character can 
do so. She is undoubtedly the best Belvidera that has been seen here 
for some time ; although we do not think her by any means to be com- 
pared with Miss O'Neil. We have no doubt that Mrs. Simian will 
establish for herself a distinguished reputation in Tragedy, should 
she be tried in the leading characters. It is said that her Mrs. Nailer 
is an admirable performance — if so, it is very probable th« Play of 
The Stranger will be presented shortly. We beg to offer the follow- 
ing opinion, which we thiuk is likely to be agreed with by every ju- 
dicious manager ; namely, that when a performer has made one* suc- 
cessful advance on the favorable opinion of the public, nothing should 
be permitted to delay further eiforts,but the hold should be sustained, 
if possible, by a range through the best characters adapted to the 
particular talent, without resting too long on any single part. If this, 
arrangement were adopted, the public and the management would 
speedily be conducted to. the full opinion they should-adopr, and the 
performer by being fairly tried and justly ranked, would not be kept 
in an injurious state of suspencc. In respect to the other two chief cha- 
racters in the tragedy on Saturday, we never can expect to see Pierre 
and Jaffier more admirably acted than they were by Mr. Young and 
Mr. C. Kemble. Each, and the debutante likewise, received abun- 
dant applauses from a crowded and brilliant audience. The revived 
entertainment of The Escapes followed, and was excellently acted. v 

SDrtttp Italic Cljcatre* 

The Opera of The Maid of theMill was revived at this liouse on 
Saturday night. The music of this piece is very pleasing ; but we 

"cannot think it an experimdnt likely to answer, to attempt Opera, 
without a distinguished singer in the leading male character. Mr. 
Horn has much taste, and he can help through a musical afterpiece 
very well, but he cannot command our ears in parts where fine iuusic 

, is demanded. Mrs. Bedford, as Patty, sang very sweetly, and Mr. 
Bedford sang and acted, as Giles very pleasantly. Mrs. Waylett 
made an excellent Fanny .; and Mr. Knjght'j Ralph was in his usual 
felicitous style. — There was a good house at half-price. 

I^ap-niarftet €fjcatre* 

Mr. Hamblin had his Benefit here on Saturday night, on which' oc-

~~ €ofccnf<£atDcn <djeatre. 

The frequent repetition of Der Freischutz, deprives us of making 
any new observations on [its performance. The music of this piece, 
and the Incantation-scene, have become so famous that we presume 
it will be still represented here several times more ; although, it would 
appear the town is likely to have enough of it, as it 13 preparing at 
Drury, with a closer adherence to its original mode of being per- 
formed than has yet taken place — it is impossible to say yet, whether 
this will turn out an improved version according to our English tastes. 
Miss Paton last night, executed her share of the music greatly to 
the delight of the audience, as she always does. In Clan, which 
followed,, Miss M. Tree sang and acted with all her wonted sweet- 
ness of manner; and Mr. Fawcett moved the feelings powerfully by 
his display of paternal anguish at the supposed destruction of a be- 
loved daughter's moral reputation. 

The Comedy to be presented to-night at this Theatre, is, an al- 
teration of Rowley's Comedy of f* Anew Wonder ; a Woman neve:;: 
Vextl" done by Mr. Planche. we understand. William Rowley 
lived in the time of James the First, and was an actor as well as aa 
author. He performed the character of the Clown in this Comedy, 
which part is to be represented by Mr. Blanchard. Rowley was a 
lively, pleasant fellow, quite what in our times would be called a oon, 
vivant, and shewn his own temperament in this Play. We know not 
what Mr. Planche has made of the Widow ; but in the original she 
is in point of wealth at least a very Mrs. Coutts ; and with a happy 
temper that ever smiles on all, and defies the grim-monster Care.—- 
We trust Mr. Planche has taken care to correct the indelicacies of x 
the original ; and, if so, he may have added to the wit and humor of 
it as much as he pleases ; and so, we wish the Comedy in its new 
shape every success.

Pizarro was acted last night, to a good house. In the combat be- 
tween Jllonzo and Pizarro, the former's sword broke, and left him 
at the mercy of the tyrant, but Mr. Armstrong, who played Alonzo, 
killed his enemy a-la-Cribb. The Ballet of Cinderella was afterwards 
produced at this house for the first time, and very prettily danced.

Coticnt oBarben €geatce* 

Last night was produced the altered Comedy of Rowley, under the title of 
" A Woman never Vext ; or, the Widow of Cornhill" This Play met with 
decided success, and very justly so. because it possesses a light strain of dia- 
logue, blended with scenes' of considerable interest, and, moreover, was ad- 
mirably acted. The story is to this effect :— Foster, an old and rich merchant 
of London, has a younger brother, Stephen Foster, whose gaiety of disposi- 
tion has led to his ruin, and occasions his imprisonment, from which he is de- 
livered by his brother's son. For this act, the elder Foster hates his son, be- 
cause he likewise indulges through his wife's malevolence, a hatred of his bro- 
ther. Old Foster thus "casts off both, and refuses them the least assistance. — 
Whilst this state cf things exist, the wealthy and happy Widow Welsted, " a. 
Woman never Vext," has seen and admired the unfortunate brother, and boldly 
and frankly offers him her hand and her ric
